a brief history
RAIN FOR SENIORS, BY SENIORS : A TRIP DOWN MEMORY LANE
In 2014 RAIN began to work with a simple desire to bring seniors of the Indian Sub Continent Community together and provide them with a venue to meet regularly.
Today we are a well known Community Service organization with 300 members and a great team of volunteers. We have built an effective entrepreneurial and passionate volunteer team, a strong and diverse donor base and a foundation of scalable programming.
WE MAKE A DIFFERENCE IN OUR SENIORS' LIVES
RAIN Seniors benefit from companionship, support and care. Our activities and services are non-specific culturally and cater for a diverse variety of traditions of the Indian Sub Continent.
“This group is for seniors who are lonely at home. It serves us very well. We are always enjoying the group and meeting others. We all get together – from all parts of India.”
