Our Seniors

Those who respect their elders paved their own road towards success
~ (African Proverbs) ~


Jaku Konbit’s Seniors Program is about inter-generational learning and sharing between our Afro-Canadian grandparents and our young folk in the local Ottawa community. Our goal is to increase the role of seniors volunteering in all Programs and activities of Jaku Konbit. We also wish to increase the support and understanding of young members in our Community as it relates to the importance and value of our seniors..
