  • Build partnerships with institutions in the United States who share similar goals.
  • Set up services which when fully operational would benefit generations to come.

Putting the plan into motion

  • Find and employ qualified Helping Hands companions to assist the elders in the community
  • Launch the pilot program in Umuezeaga, an autonomous community in the town of Akokwa. Once operational, this program will become the model for other Elders Helping Hands chapters throughout Nigeria.
