The organization of Retired Persons “Wisdom Ripening” is preparing for its 5-year anniversary. Quite recently the elder people of Tuymazy city could not even imagine how interesting and exciting their lives could be in retirement. How life of pensioners and the society’s attitude towards them has changed with the foundation of the organization of Retired Persons “Wisdom Ripening” is in our report.

I myself feel and everyone says I am prettier, healthier now. I seldom go to hospital. Our local doctor says, that he recommends his family members, relatives and patients to follow my way of life. The first meetings of the Board of the Organization were held in the apartment of its founder Gulnara Minnigaleeva.
Now the Organization has its own Office, which hosts meetings and classes for pensioners. The Organization has a great influence, at both local and regional level. Before the appearance of the organization, there were not any projects. The attitude of the pensioners themselves is changing, which in turn affects the attitude of the State towards them, says Chairman of the Board. Indeed, the Organization members not only attend the University of the Third Age, but take an active part in most volunteer activities.
