Az Idősek iskolája a megoldás a magány elől menekülő a thaiföldi nyugdíjasok számára

Egy csoport frissen vasalt piros-fehér egyenruhába öltözött hatvanas nyugdíjas jókedvűen indul reggel iskolába a thaiföldi Ajutthajában. Nekik és kortársaiknak országszerte az Idősek iskolája jó lehetőség a magány leküzdésere - a változó demográfia miatt ugyanis egyre több szépkorú ember él magányosan Thaiföldön. "Alig várom, hogy szerdánként felvehessem az iskolai egyenruhám és találkozzak a barátaimmal az iskolában. Mindig jókat beszélgetünk és nagyokat nevetünk" - mondja a 77 éves özvegy Somjit Teeraroj, az Idősek Iskolájának tanulója. Somjit negyven év házasság után vesztette el férjét, a gyász leküzdése után az Idősek Iskolája segített számára új barátokat, társaságot találni. Az ő története nem egyedi a rohamosan elöregedő Thaiföldön, ahol jelenleg 7,5 millió 65 évnél idősebb ember él - ez a szám azonban az idő előrehaladtával csak még tovább fog emelkedni.
