WHAT IF ELDERLY PEOPLE COULD FEEL YOUNG AND HAPPY AGAIN?

There are thousands of senior citizens globally that are often socially isolated, which can result in health issues. This is something that doesn’t need to happen – if the elderly feel less isolated and lonely, they can live longer, healthier and happier lives.

We wanted to do something to help this generation and we’ve made a big difference so far. YoungHappy helps the elderly by organising social events, producing relevant content, and building a community both online, through an app, and offline. Through this combination, YoungHappy has helped more than 40,000 seniors maintain an active and healthy lifestyle. When you are happy mentally, your physical health will follow suit, which is called active aging.

FUNDING WOULD ALLOW US TO…

With more than 40,000 members in our online community, YoungHappy has increased the active aging of elderly people to 18% based on the Active Aging Index of WHO (World Health Organisation). An increase in Active Aging Index results in happiness both physically and mentally. With funding from the Chivas Venture, we would be able to double this impact.

MY COUNTRY INSPIRED ME

I have lived in a country which is in the world’s top five for inequality, meaning I’ve seen many upsetting social problems. I’ve always dreamed of owning my own charity, but they require lots of money. It was only when I read a book about social enterprises that I realised I could help solve social issues sustainably, while supporting my team members.

YoungHappy makes me feel like I am 30 years old again. I feel that I want to live longer, and I also feel that elderly people have value and can create more benefit to society. Punpikul Wittayanakorn (???????????? ???????)

WHAT’S YOUR BLEND FOR SUCCESS?

Creating change is not easy, but that doesn’t mean it’s impossible. If we try to create impact by blending together like-minded people with diverse capacities, I believe that change can be possible and successful.
