HelpAge USA, an affiliate of HelpAge International, builds awareness of global aging issues among US audiences; advocates for the empowerment of older, vulnerable adults in the developing world; and raises funds to support the programs of the HelpAge network.
HelpAge International has offices in London and Brussels, six regional centers coordinating our work in Africa, East and South Asia, Latin America, the Caribbean and Eastern Europe/Central Asia, and a number of national programs and emergency response programs. We've reached 1.23 million older people, worked with 225 partners across 41 countries, and supported 2,400 older people's groups. Since its inception in 1983, the HelpAge network of affiliates has grown to include 80 like-minded organizations in 56 countries – giving older people a stronger voice than ever.
The HelpAge vision is of a world in which all older people fulfill their potential to lead dignified, active, healthy and secure lives. HelpAge is driven by a fundamental understanding that older people have the wisdom and the personal drive to contribute to their own wellbeing and to that of their families. We work globally to ensure that people everywhere understand how much older people contribute to society and that they must enjoy their right to healthcare, social services and economic and physical security.
