Nonna Irma, a 93-year-old grandmother in Noventa Vicentina in Veneto, Italy, proves that anyone can help make the world a brighter place.On Monday, Irma started her journey to Kenya to do volunteer work in an orphanage.
Her granddaughter, wrote a post about her grandmother’s inspiring story on Facebook with photos sent from her mother, who is accompanying Irma on her journey.
“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 because I believe that all of us should always keep a dash of recklessness in order to live & not just survive. Look at her… Who’s stopping her? I love her.”

According to an interview Coltro gave to the Italian newspaper, Irma had been giving donations to the Kenyan orphanage, founded by an Italian missionary, for years.
