Age has nothing to do with making the world a better place, and nobody proves that better than this grandma. Nonna Irma has lived a long and full life in her hometown of Noventa Vicentina in Veneto, Italy. However, her life is far from being over. In fact, this grandma recently left for Kenya where she’ll be volunteering her time at an orphanage.
Irma’s granddaughter, Elisa Coltro, took to her Facebook to share her grandmother’s story using pictures sent to her by her mother who accompanied her on the trip.
The caption reads:
“This is my grandma Irma, a young lady of 93, who set off for Kenya tonight. Not to some tourist resort to be waited on hand and foot, but to go to a village of children, in an orphanage. I’m showing her to you because I believe that all of us should always keep a dash of recklessness in order to live and not just survive. Look at her… Who’s stopping her? I love her.”
For years, Irma’s been donating money to Kenyan orphanage which was founded by an Italian missionary. Coltro share that this year, “donations weren’t enough. She wanted to make herself useful.”
Their trip is scheduled to last for three weeks. “Or perhaps my grandma will decide to stay and won’t come back,” Coltro quipped. “It’s entirely possible, knowing her big heart and her energy.”
