An initiative for the people over the age of 60 who have worked tirelessly in the fields of education, infrastructure, public health and gender equality with no political background.
This effort was part of a long line of activities Panasonic India is partaking within the Gharaunda Block, in order to further develop and create a culture of elderly participation, promote a community support mechanism for social initiatives and create a process of engagement between the elderly and the younger generation.
