Empowering pre-seniors and seniors to prepare for better active aging lives.

Aging is a growing concern in Thailand with the potential to destabilize large segments of society. Within the next decade, more than one out of every five Thai citizens will be at least 60 years old, making the country “super aged” and leading to a host of economic and healthcare challenges. Kenan has identified promoting a healthy aging society for seniors and pre-seniors as one of its key challenges to be addressed in Thailand.

Kenan has successfully implemented its NextGen Aging Model for over four years in Thailand. The model focuses on improving physical and mental health, financial security, employability, and promoting lifelong learning for pre-seniors and seniors by building the capacity of change agents in communities.
