Happy Childhood Foundation is a ‘Women and Children‘ based organization dedicated to work for and with underserved children and women.

Most children around the mining areas particularly in Sikuda and Tiira are between the age of 5 and 12 and are engaged in hazardous work due to the prevalence of poverty in the rural communities. With limited knowledge on child development and survival, most parents and families force their children to engage in worst forms of work to supplement household incomes for survival.

Happy Childhood Foundation plans to mobilize support to remove children from worst forms of child labor by creating awareness and providing parents/caregivers of children with small business skills training and revolving loans. The microloans for small business development will serve as an alternative support to increase household incomes to sustain care and education for the children.

By providing knowledge and financial support to parents and families, children will be able to access education and health care. Parents/caregivers will be provided training on small business development and micro project management.

The main activities of the volunteers will be visiting communities and writing project proposals in the office to solicit for support to respond to the needs of the vulnerable communities during their time in Busia.

The volunteers will get opportunity to visit tourist sites like the source of the Nile and also enjoy many attractive social amenities like, lake Victoria, sipi falls in kapchorwa etc during their free days. they will also visit Busitema forest reserves and view wild animals like Baboons, Monkeys etc
