There is an Africans proverb -- which comes in many forms from the African continent -- that suggests that an old person is like a unique, invaluable, irreplaceable library. Old women and old men ( why even younger adults and children) have much to share about life and about ourselves if we provide learningful avenues and platforms through which their wisdom and experiences can be actively shared.
A learning journey platform for the young to meet older folks, to learn from them --
experiences, concerns, challenges, contradictions, fears, hope, frustrations, inspiration, wisdom.
