It’s often said that elders are the real gems of our society. Their pearls of wisdom have always helped us get through difficulties and made us learn new things. However, in today’s fast-paced world, our precious elders are often unable to keep up. Due to the current global situation, ‘digital is the new normal’ and elders often struggle with handling technology. In a time like this, an initiative like The Social Paathshala is here to their rescue! It’s an organization that aims to equip the elders of our society with much-needed digital education. They also partner with NGOs and communities to provide complimentary sessions as well. Here’s everything you need to know about this fantastic initiative!

What does The Social Paathshala do?

Based out of Mumbai, The Social Paathshala is an initiative that provides digital empowerment to the elderly. Their vision is to help them adapt to the new normal. The Social Paathshala conducts group and personalised sessions on weekends with tailor-made topics and schedules. We love how they are not only working towards adapting the elderly to the new normal but also helping them develop confidence and independence. They recently started a new initiative called ‘Paathshala For Her‘ that provides interactive technology sessions especially for ladies, how exciting!
