Welcome to Photo Friday! Each Friday, we share photo collections of our favourite shots from our sponsor sites around the world.
This weekend we celebrate World Senior Citizens Day, a time to honour the elderly among us. Whether it’s a grandparent, friend or teacher, the elderly are full of so much wisdom and knowledge, it could fill a book. They pass on traditions and shape our futures.
This week, we’re sharing our top 5 ‘Elderly Wisdom’ photos as a reminder of all the little pieces of wisdom they’ve passed on over the years.
Did you know? In addition to child sponsorship, some of our sites have a sponsorship program for elders. Elders with little or no family support can rely on sponsorship and their Chalice site for food, medical support, and companionship.
#5: Work Hard
With the help of a local Chalice circle group, Sudha took out a small loan where she lives in India. Along with the money that came from being sponsored, she started her own agricultural business! She leases a half-acre of land to grow jasmine flowers, a highly valuable plant in India.
