MISSOURI CITY, Texas — Happy Children Happy World, a 501 (c) (3) non-profit that was founded in August 2014, aims to empower children for a brighter future.
The mission of the organization, according to its Indian American founder Jacob David, is “to get children off the streets and give them a life, meeting all their basic necessities, till they become 18 years of age, provide vocational training to help them find a way of life, become independent earners, have and maintain dignity for life.”
At the official launch of the non-profit at the Hilton Garden Inn in Pearland, Texas, May 31, David, CEO, said he came across this hard truth as he researched the problem of the deplorable condition of the world in which today’s children live.
“From land to food, to medicines, to basic healthcare, there’s plenty to go around. Yet over 31,000 children die daily due to malnutrition, and from preventable and curable diseases.”
“We would love for children to have basic education, shelter, immediate access to basic health care and medicine, clean water to drink and nutritious food to eat,” David said in a press release.
“We would love to train children job skills (after the age of 10) to live and survive, the skills to do a trade, become independent earners and productive citizens in the country in which they live. Vocational training in multiple fields will help in eradicating poverty.”
