We would like to engage 20 seniors in creating a Local Seniors Club in Wierzbica. Seniors from the Wierzbica Municipality have reported that the currently operating club is not meeting their needs. They also stressed that there are no leaders among their peers knowledgeable in social organizing and communicating with the municipality authorities. We will try to make the Seniors Club more active and its members involved in the decision-making process. We will train selected seniors on civic and social engagement, communication and advocating for one’s rights. They will become the leaders collecting ideas from among other members of their community. Additionally, we will complete 20 additional social initiatives, addressing the needs of the elderly in our municipality.
