We support bringing together people of all generations. We want them to get to know one other, to respect each other and together discover new. In particular, we want that the oldest meet the youngest, that they would find a way to each other and discover how beautiful and interesting are their worlds. We perceive small children, older adults and active middle generation like natural mutual partners, who can give each other the joy of life, wisdom and energy.
THE PROGRAM TALK!
The program is our main intergenerational activity. In its framework, we connect older adults from the senior facilities and children from kindergarten or primary school, we support their regular meetings and help to create the space for common language and active sharing of time.
THE PROGRAM READ!
In a pleasant and natural way, the program connects the world of older adults and children. The older adult comes once a week to the kindergarten to read a fairytale. Children thus have “their” magical fairy grandmother or grandfather and, on the other hand, these can gain energy from a genuine children’s joy.
The project “Intergenerational programs for older adults”
Mezi námi is the implementer of the project “Intergenerational programs for older adults”, which is co-financed by the European union under the Operational programme Prague – Growth Pole (the European social fund). Implementation takes place on the territory of Prague from 1.2.2017 to 31.12.2018.
The project is aimed at the prevention of social exclusion of older adults living in senior facilities, or so far in the natural environment. It targets on the quality of life of older adults and their involvement in the life of the local community through intergenerational activities. It offers creative workshops, reading fairy tales and other forms of engaging the older adults with children and neighbors. The vision is to build a separate network communities, managed by its members from the target group.
