My Age My Help International has succeeded in the following: *Engaging one hundred aged (over 60 years old) with twice monthly healthcare in their homes and communities. *Holding "Experience sharing programs amongst the youth and elderlies of people of Abuakwa North Municipality of Ghana, which got the youth sensitized about challenges in life and aging, and also empowered aged about their worth in society. Gifts were shared to all beneficiaries (aged) to boost their morale and went a long way reducing depression. *Health insurance of all beneficiaries have constantly been renewed to curb outrageous healthcare expenses. *Two healthcare nurses have been permanently employed by us with remuneration. *Siting land for snail farming to feed the project.

Sustainability and future plans

Heal Mankind currently depends on contributions from Executives of the NGO and any other donations from individuals, to start the snail farming project. Also fundraising exercises and fund soliciting strategies have been ongoing. It's our plan to generate revenue from the snail project to run the activities of the organization including providing the basic needs of all our beneficiaries (aged) and their close dependants. Most of dependants of our beneficiaries would be employed to earn income for themselves as well. Produce (matured snails) shall be internally and externally be marketed and sold for running of the organization.

Your profile as an entrepreneur

I am 33 year old self motivated aged advocate and social activist who yearns to see smiles on the faces of people especially, the elderlies and underprivileged individuals in the communities. I am a Physician Assistant, Medical and Senior Staff Nurse by profession who have realized keen interest of the welfare of the aged because of the unfriendly environment they find themselves; so much stigma and rejection ranging from attention, provision of basic physiological needs, love, etc. Depression has set in the lives because of the perception by society as irrelevant and mean. Right from inadequate provision by state with unenforced laws supporting the aged down to the immediate community and families of the aged contribute to such ill perception and high aged related diseases in the country. It is in this light that I haven taken it upon myself to initiate warm and fundamental measures to address such problem to give our elderlies hope and room to live good lives with contentment of worthiness. One hundred aged have been roped into my project with objective of getting a snail farm business running with your support to feed my clients (elderlies and underprivileged)

This is a great project or initiative. I believe it will help empower the rural folks and bring them out of poverty. Capacity building in our poverty striken communities through training activities, health education and care, and community sensitization would go a long way to impact positively.

This is a stage we'll all get to(if God permits). A stage where an adult behaves like a child. Indeed it's difficult to stay with the aged, hence the stigma that leads them to the grave with bitterness in their hearts.
This is a good initiative and needs all the support to get to the very top.
Good job, I love it.
