Terēzija Mackare, Board Chair of the NGO “Riga Active Seniors’ Alliance” admits that nowadays using a computer is an integral part of daily life – both at work, and in dealing with household matters. Senior citizens use the computers in the care of the NGO on a day-to-day basis; therefore, they must be in working order. Terēzija Mackare enthusiastically acknowledges that the foundation’s programme offered a support to the NGO in its operations. “One should live with joy, with an eye on the future; thus, we really should make the most of the possibilities provided by the latest technologies,” she says.
