The Old Age Home
In Western Country, Old aged person stay in old home is a common incident, but for our country, it is not natural because Bangladesh is a family bonding country. People here like to stay together. But increasing with modern facilities, people now prefer to think only for themselves & their old aged parents seems burden to them & they try to get rid from them. For that reason the number of Old homes are increasing day by day.
Mission & Vision of this project:
The main mission of the project is to increasing awareness between the young generation for not to leave their parents along in the time of their need. We want to make them conscious in this sense that, if they leave their parents along on their need, one day they also must be leave by their lovely children without any reason.
The letter posted in every wall of old home is given bellow:
If we successfully can increase awareness between people, the Rang on Old age home living people must be decrease & our countries family bonding being strong again.
By this project we can make better relationship between us & the old people. We come to know about their life style & easily prepared ourselves for our future. IT helps us in many ways.
