I'm raising money for a cause I care about, but I need your help to reach my goal! Please become a supporter to follow my progress and share with your friends.
Over the six years since Happy Kids Center’s founding, we have developed programs that uniquely meet the needs of our little community, responding to the root causes of poverty and allowing families to lift themselves up and remove themselves from the cycle. Over the last two years, however, our efforts were been redirected. Instead of focusing on getting children off the streets and into school, we had to do just the opposite -- ensuring every child and parent was safe and secure in their homes. We did so by making sure everyone had enough to eat and drink and had access to all the supplies they woudl need protect themselves and their families amidst the Covid-19 pandemic.
However, this Giving Tuesday we are looking forward to brighter days as we begin to relaunch our programs and get back to our mission. We recognize that over the next year we will need to work harder than ever to get our community back on track. According to the World Health Organization, "the COVID-19 pandemic is estimated to disrupt the efforts made so far to end child marriage, and is expected to result in 13 million more girls forced into early marriages between 2020 and 2030." At the same time, with schools closed and extreme poverty on the rise, decades of progress in the work against child labor is being threatened worldwide, according to UNICEF. We refuse to let our community backtrack. We need your help to ensure that when it is safe we will be able to relaunch all of our programs and come back to the fight against child labor and child marriage stronger than ever.
Our Happy Kids and their parents thank you in advance!
