The biggest complaint of the elders of our family is that they get separated. There was no one to talk to them. All facilities are available, but the fear of solitude haunts them the most. Now the trend of old age ashram is also increasing rapidly where elderly people are kept. The children pay the fees of the ashram and the elderly parents spend their lives there. Goodfellows Startup solves this problem because its job is to connect senior citizens with youth. Its purpose is that age may become a victim of old age, but mind, thinking and thoughts should always remain young.
