WHAT WE CELEBRATE
Sweet 60 is a multimedia project consisting of an online website and a non-fiction video feature. We believe that opportunity is a gift and that the children of the senior citizens should help their senior citizen parents since the Philippine Constitution also states that “it is the duty of the family to take care of the elderly members”. Through this, we will present the different opportunities and benefits available for senior citizens through the help of various government offices, non-government organizations and the senior citizens themselves. We're here to show that their age should be a celebration for more things to come.
