Hello! We're a group of Year 3 students from Ngee Ann Polytechnic working on our Final Year Project starting a social enterprise called How Are You.


What is this project about?

As our population continues to age, social isolation and longing for social connectedness in seniors have become much more prevalent. (And with COVID-19, it has become a much more dire issue now!) Through our research, we found out that there is a lack of programmes that support lonely older adults living with children/family. Studies have also shown that some elderly feel lonely despite living with their family. The existing initiatives that are in place usually tend to help low-income, no/limited family support and vulnerable seniors. Singapore is also has a rapidly ageing population, many studies have shown that loneliness can have serious effects on one’s health.

One of the solutions that have been suggested to counter these issues is building social connections to strengthen one's social network support. Hence, we would be creating a platform that does so!

How Are You is a befriending platform targeted at senior citizens to encourage them to create new connections and stay connected through a mobile application.

How will the funds be used?

This campaign seeks to cover the cost incurred in developing the application. After developing the prototype, it will be tested out with the elderly and understand how we can improve it to better suit their needs.

How to donate?

You can donate through GoGetFunding by pressing the "Donate Now" button.
