Who we are
1 Toit 2 Ages: A desire to bring generations together
Grandparents have always welcomed young students, grandchildren or not, into their homes in a spirit of mutual support. In the 1990s, this cohabitation was structured, supervised by programmes that ensured its proper functioning, thus avoiding any drift or abuse. Intergenerational housing is born!
In Belgium, it was in July 2009 that Régis and Claire de Kerautem created 1toit2ages programme. It started in Brussels before continuing its development three years later in Wallonia, following numerous calls from seniors and students motivated by this win-win project.
1toit2ages is composed of a team with very diverse profiles; lawyer, social worker, journalist, neuropsychologist, economist, professors, senior... each one bringing his skills, his knowledge, his sensitivity and his listening to this purely Human project.
Breaking the loneliness of the elderly and facilitating access to housing for students.
Our dream ?
A society where generations support and enrich each other.
We believe in it and are doing everything we can to achieve it!
Festive events organized by the non-profit organization (afternoon games, intergenerational dinner, visits...) allow us to touch this enrichment and strongly encourage us to continue and dream.....
More than an ambition, 1 Toit 2 Ages is experiencing sustained growth
