Rite Folk High School initiated the pilot work by involving the school's strong network of resource persons. The recruitment of new volunteers was combined with cultural events at the school.
Completing the pilot services, June - Nov 2014 - the second step
The group of culture guides helped other older people, who were isolated at home and for various reasons never get out to gain new impressions and inspiration.
The activities included a 1-day excursion to Riga and visits to events at the High School, such a two films in the new film club, two evenings with bingo, some days with handicraft and how to make hammocks using finger knitting.
Normally around 15 people participate in the arrangements, that also included offerings of some food in cosy socializing.
