bihani: (noun) morning, beginning of a new day
Bihani Social Venture was born out of the need to create a positive outlook on ageing and the continual need to live meaningfully. Our focus is on individuals who want to re-engage, re–explore and re–live a rewarding second half of their lives. The aim is to provide a platform for the elders in our community to strengthen their purpose and fulfillment by sharing prior experiences, learning intergenerational, and engaging impactful with the impactful community.
Ageing is a ubiquitous and natural process that every person experiences, yet we find it uncomfortable to discuss. Bihani Social Venture seeks to empower each of us to see that with each new day of life we gain more knowledge and experience that can be used to bring about change. We are founded on the principles of multi-generational interaction and our activities promote the formation of new bonds and transfer of knowledge across generations. In doing so, we work towards dispelling societal limitations based on age.
