Looking to connect with Fellows working in the Senior Citizen/Ageing space (November 11th - November 21st, 2017)

Posted by Esi Ansah on Oct 9, 2017 2:20 pm

Hello Fellows,
I will be visiting the US, and would really like to connect with people who would be interested in my venture. I would like to find people who have done similar work with senior citizens, find philanthropists and generally, people I can build partnerships with and learn from. I’d appreciate whatever recommendations/referrals you may have.  My venture involves ...
  1. Working with senior citizens to gain financial independence; social inclusion and access to discounted products and services at the individual level
  2. Working with partner organizations to make their products and services more accessible to senior citizens across 8 key areas, community-based events and
  3. Policy advocacy to push for free healthcare for senior citizens via a new social pension scheme; awareness creation on the changing dynamics of ageing in Ghana, and advocacy on very targeted issues (class action lawsuits by some groups of pensioners, etc...).
 I’ll be in NYC/DC from November 11th to 15th, and then head to Grand Rapids Michigan till the 18th.  Back in NYC/DC from the 18th to the 21st.
 
You may visit my website - www.ageafrica.com to learn a little about my venture, and here's a 2 minute video  clip from a recent event. 
Thank you very much, and I look forward to connecting with you either to chat about this venture or just connect.  Please feel free to reach out.
Cheers.
Esi.
