In three months, a new chapter was launched with two trishaws in
Munich including the training of 26 volunteers, and increased media
attention focusing on elderly care. Even though the initial launch and
rides had to be put on hold due to covid, three outcomes still manifested:
Trained volunteers - By engaging to serve the elderly and
contributing to their communities, the volunteers gained a strong
sense of fulfilment and satisfaction over both being physically active
and doing some good.
Built a network of support - The project brought together a strong
network of organisations and people, who were determined, innovative
and full of goodwill in the face of the challenges of the global pandemic.
Mindset shift - Many of the critical stakeholders experienced an
important shift in mindset early on in the development of the project
regarding how much is possible with the elderly.
