The program recruits local unemployed young people, who are trained by the FSSB Sisters in appropriate skills for elderly care. 

The young people provide the elderly with the following services:

  • Delivering cooked food three times a week

  • Assisting with household tasks

  • Checking of the elders' vital signs 

  • Administering over-the-counter medications 

  • Assisting with activities of daily living

  • Providing companionship

 

The young recruits are also trained in horticulture, sewing, arts and crafts, and soapmaking. Surplus food and handmade products are sold to help fund the program.

 

 

The Village Angels program serves two acutely underserved groups: forsaken elders and at-risk unemployed young people.
