The Happy NPO 2021 Annual Report
Our Social Kitchen in Puerto Rico is feeding more than 60 families every week. We cook healthy meals and deliver them directly to people who have little access to quality nutrition. We serve the elderly and single mothers in the towns of Vega Alta and Vega Baja. And your support today will empower our team to grow our list to 100 families fed well.
As the number of families we feed every week grows, our need for healthy produce grows with them. From our 7 acres, we have 2 acres of land primed for agriculture. Our dream is to grow and harvest 11 different local fruits, vegetables, and herbs, which will be served via our community kitchen. These 2 acres will also be a food forest, with gardening classes, agro-therapy, and free produce for those in need.
HOME REPAIR FOR THE ELDERLY
Our Social Kitchen in Puerto Rico is feeding more than 60 families every week. We serve the elderly and single mothers in the towns of Vega Alta and Vega Baja. Some of our elderly need home repairs that they can no longer undertake. Help us replace broken appliances, leaky roofs or give them a requested item in need (running shoes, walker, etc.).
CHILDREN’S HOME IN PERU
In one of the poorest areas in South America, we have created a place of health, family, and safety. Casa de Paz (Home of Peace) is a building with running water, a great team, education, internet, and healthy meals… that currently serves 40 children (with room for more). Our kids have access to showers, tutors, nutrition, counseling, and a community that believes in them.
MICRO-ENTERPRISE TRAINIG CENTER
Our new Micro-Enterprise Training Center is located right here in our Happy Campus in Puerto Rico. We aim to serve our community by empowering talent and providing the tools necessary for success. We will be running courses (plus mentorships) that will help our students start new businesses, create a sustainable plan, get all their permits, find funding, and launch successfully.
