They have enrolled in the School for the Elderly College for the Sweet Generation, and will take classes in legal knowledge, vocational training, basics about contacting government agencies, dhamma and the English language. They will also be given tips on healthcare and phone usage. 

 

“This programme has been launched to ensure that elderly people have something useful to do during their free time, and can maximise their potential,” mayor of the Hua Hin Municipality, Nopporn Wuttiku, said.

 

The special courses will be provided every Wednesday for four months.
