Gift of Happiness Foundation provides.
Positive sustainable development through educational drama & monthly aid giving projects in Thailand.
This small but very effective organization is run and maintained entirely by volunteers who are dedicated to bringing happiness to children and families in need.
What we do.
Gift of Happiness Foundation is not tied to supporting just a few children at only one location. Therefore, this unique charity has the freedom to provide joy to thousands of children in urban and remote locations throughout the country. The Foundation regularly gives simple interactive and educational comedy shows to those whose lives quite often contain little joy. We also give away tons of essential goods during our aid giving projects, delivered where it's need most and at least once every month of the year.
Who we help.
Orphans, vulnerable street children, Bangkok slum dwellers, families living on garbage dumps, AIDS centers and facilities housing physically or mentally challenged children. We regularly serve medical centers, crisis centers for abused women, communities of migrant worker families and people displaced by civil war who live in refugee camps.
"We deliver the goods".
Since 2005, the Foundation has given hundreds of performances and 100's of truck-loads of gifts such as clothing, toys, educational equipment, school uniforms and medical supplies. Those goods are donated by International Schools, Social Groups, Rotary Clubs and families living in Bangkok, Australia, UK, Europe, USA and S.E. Asia.
Provide sustainable happiness.
"Happy children become confident children"
Positive experiences like having a good old-fashioned laugh helps children living in difficult circumstances to cope and gives them a positive memory that will always belong to them.
Seeing and interacting in educational comedy helps children to use their senses and minds to explore and make sense of what they see, feel and experience in the world around them. These simple lessons on how to think 'out of the box' have been shown to help children find new and positive ways to turn a bad situation into a good one. Lessons on how to be happy also help develop positive dispositions and attitudes towards learning many other life skills needed to overcome some of the difficult tasks ahead.
