For this reason, the Foundation Movement is Life (Fundacion Movimiento Ta Bida - FMTB) dedicates the month of October to the elderly. They will organize a.o. Walks, car rallies, Full Moon night, museum visits, and sports days.
The aim of the FMBT is for the community to recognize and respect the elderly, that worked for years for the wellbeing of Aruba.
Their achievements are a.o.:
- Status aparte of Aruba within the Kingdom of the Netherlands.
- Equal pay for equal work. Till 1991, the wages of women and single men were lower than the wages of married men for doing the same work. In 1992 a court verdict eliminated this discrimination.
In the following events calendar, the activities of the Project, Together Old, Old Together, and the Foundation Movement Is Life are listed.
