Why joining this initiative? /

One of the biggest challenges for humanity today is the increase of the aging population with good health, while children in primary schools need extra adult support.

Why not bringing them together?

There are social benefits for both groups:

(1) social commitment for a better life together

(2) Increase chances of success at school

What is Connecting Heros? /

We have developed an innovative business model that combines a robust methodology for Seniors volunteering at primary schools adding value to the quality of the education of the children, with the needs of companies to improve their brand image and retain talent by pursuing socially responsible initiatives.

Our vision is to create an intergenerational online community in Sweden, and rapidly scale it up to other countries.

We will also seek to leverage the connected wearable objects technologies to strengthen the inter generational link.
