2019 Highlights!

2019 was a year of growth for Happy Kids. We’ve always been dreamers, but this year we were able to make some very important dreams a reality. Here are some highlights!

Receiving our 501c3 opened so many doors for our organization. It took our fundraising to a new level and allowed us to develop new partnerships while strengthening existing ones!

Our boys we’re finally able to move into their own home, a separate space for them to grow and thrive!

We secured a transition house in Ghana’s capital that boards a selected number of graduates looking for work and continued education students studying in Accra.

We were the winners of the @mementomoriwinery photo challenge and won $50,000!! We are still pinching ourselves with this one!

A grant opportunity allowed us to increase our nutrition budget, install new water tanks & get all children and staff tested and vaccinated for Hepatitis B.

We released our 2nd Annual Exclusive Happy Kids Wine with @skwinery – the label was designed by one of our boys.

Our nursery school is looking better than ever with more space, additional teachers, new tables and chairs, and increased toys and educational materials.

 Our first annual holiday party was a great success in South Bay LA, bringing in much needed funds to sustain us in the new year. With the help of some amazing advocates, we were able to bring a whole new audience to our mission.

We are very grateful looking back at 2019, thank you to all who helped make it possible! Happy New Year everyone! ?
