Decent Work
Older people are among the poorest groups of the population in many developing countries, particularly where there are no public pension schemes. Many have no choice but to continue working long into old age in informal, low-paid jobs that are often physically strenuous and detrimental to their health.

They have no job security, no rights and are subjected to age discrimination.

HelpAge International spoke to working older people in Bangladesh, Peru and Uganda to find out about the challenges they face. This photogallery tells some of their stories….

HelpAge International is calling for universal pensions for all older people worldwide. Supported by a regular minimum income, older people can live with dignity and security in old age.
