‘Les Talents d’Alphonse’ is the name of a online platform launched by two young French engineers to make use of seniors’ experience while promoting social interactions between the young and older generations.
What if the concept?
Many seniors know how to cook, sew, knit and repair, while many young people can’t do it anymore. The objective of this platform is to bring together young people willing to acquire new skills with older people willing to feel useful and supplement their incomes. The services are proposed for around 15 euros/hour in a number of areas: cooking, sewing, knitting, do-it-yourself, mecanics, gardening and photography.
