This film shows how cow banks can help older people to improve their livelihoods and create income generating activities for older people in Cambodia . The Cowbank initiative is part of a wider strategy by HelpAge Cambodia to enable and build capacities among Older People’s Associations.
This film was produced by Helpage Cambodia to show some of the process and activities related to the formation of Older People’s Associations in Cambodia. Helpage is the only organization supporting older people in Cambodia.
Older people face many issues, particularly as they become older and lose mobility. With only few safety nets, older people can find huge benefits to regroup into local associations. That is what HelpAge Cambodia is doing today: acting as a secretariat for a federation of Older People’s Association ensure long term sustainability for this crucial and life saving development intervention.
