Happy Africa Foundation

Our ethos is based on building and maintaining strong partnerships with the communities we work in. We work to enrich people’s lives through implementing improved health and nutrition infrastructures, building opportunities for better education, creating safe places for children to play and helping to generate sustainable sources of income for families.
 
Each community has unique needs and we pride ourselves on striving to understand and address those needs in a sustainable and impactful way.

Here you can find out more about the work we do and about how you can get involved in making a difference to the lives of adults and children in impoverished regions of Africa.
