As part of our ongoing mission to connect donors with schools in need of additional assistance, in September 2018 we started a pilot project called Happy Kids. This program provides students with additional assistance, including nutritious foods, school uniforms, and health check & education, environmental education and inspiration day.
The first batch of Happy Kids program was held in two pre-schools located in Sumba, East Nusa Tenggara with an initial cohort of 92 beneficiary students. The assistance provided by the Happy Kids program has increased students participation rates by 50%. We aim to continue this effort by implementing Happy Kids in several more schools across East Nusa Tenggara.
