Frequently asked questions

Below are common questions regarding various aspects of our foundation. If you do not see an answer to your question, please do not hesitate to contact us.

Despite various conflicts over the years, H.A.P.P.Y. always has directly bestowed funding to the intended recipients. Our founder works closely with the Ethiopian government to ensure the safe delivery of funds raised. We also carefully plan before executing any action. Put simply, your financial support makes an impact and by accomplishing our projects, we will ensure a sustaining solution for the improverished people in Ethiopia.
Ethiopia has several regions. The Southern region is more developed than the Northern region, specifically the Tigray region. The Ethiopian government is working on constructing a desalination plant in Eastern Ethiopia. At present, H.A.P.P.Y. will focus on the Northern region that has more of a desert-like landscape containing over 7 million people in need of clean water. It is an extensive project that includes drilling and piping a system throughout the region.
All of our students are orphaned children that are under the protection and guidance of H.A.P.P.Y. Your generous contributions will support some of the following examples: support over 8,000 students, supply school materials, uniforms, clothes, shoes, computers, equipment, sporting / athletic, construction and / or maintenance of Pre-K to 8 school, and construction and / or maintenance of a High School.
We already have a plan to build multiple medical clinics throughout Tigray, Ethiopia. This would be more effective than building a large medical campus which we're typically accustomed to within the United States. This will enable more outreach since most Ethiopians are not capable of travelling great distances to seek medical help. With that being said, your donation for our medical projects will also support the aquisition and maintenance of off-road capable ambulances since there are typically no functioning ambulances in the Tigray region. Sustaining contributions are available and can also be made monthly or annually.
We always need help sharing our content on various social media platforms including, but not limiting to, Facebook, Instagram, and YouTube. We also need help with making phone calls and emails to potential donors. We're always accepting new clothes, new shoes, school supplies, laptops, and other office-related expendables to help our schools and our volunteers can spend time collecting these items and help prepare them for shipment to Tigray, Ethiopia.
We thank you for your interest in helping our worthy cause! You can begin by going to our Contact page and either connecting with us by phone or by email. We will learn more about how you would like to volunteer your time as well as let you know what we're currently working on.
