Nightingales Jobs 60+ is a project of Nightingales Medical Trust. This Project aims at improving the quality of economically insecure older persons by enhancing their skills and fitness and facilitating job opportunities. Elders, 60 to 70 years of age, in dire need of jobs are identified. Their functional and intellectual capabilities and needs are assessed and classified. For those, who cannot work in offices, we impart vocational training in tailoring, making of candles, greeting cards, eco products such as paper bags, arecanut plates and cups, eatables like chocolates, pickles etc.
All the training and placement services rendered at Jobs 60+ are free of cost.
