Jenny has developed, an inter-generational, creative and educational program that enables relationships to form, based on respect, compassion and empathy.
In addition to music, the program includes activities such as story telling, puzzles and art. These fun, ongoing interactive sessions stimulate and encourage everyone to listen, communicate and learn from each other.
The elderly gain a sense of purpose and feel more empowered by having this new role to play. They love the interaction with the children and feel genuine excitement for the next visit. Many have commented that the sessions made them "feel young again" and "were better than chocolate."
The children have shown a marked increase in confidence, communication and listening skills and thrive on the undivided attention given to them.
Our aim is to expand the JOY program throughout the wider community, giving many more people the opportunity to participate in this uplifting and unique program.
Your donations will help to fund:
* JOY sessions
* Training new JOY facilitators
* JOY resource boxes filled with equipment for each session.
