El Pajarito The Latin American Elderly Project

[Please note the majority of this videos audio is in Spanish with English subtitles.] El Pajarito, or the little bird, is a program for elderly Latin Americans living in England.


The Latin American Elderly Project provides support, classes, outings, and a community of other Latin Americans living in London.

Volunteers in the project help the elderly who have difficulties because of language barriers and disabilities. Do such programs or communities exist in the U.S.? Why do you think this would or would not be important in our society, especially considering our diversity?
