Mama and Papa and the Happy House family were delighted to welcome four researchers from Italy and Poland.
They are in Kenya doing research on socio-cultural issues affecting people and communities,
They are attached to Pwani University in Kilifi and when they requested to visit a children’s home , they were referred to Happy House.
They wanted to know about the history of Happy House, how we normally admit children, exit plans of the children, type of cases we have at the home, cultural practices of the people surrounding us that lead to their having children in an institution like ours.
In short they wanted to know what we do here at home and for the entire community.
Papa took them around the home and school and they were really impressed with our work.
They gave our kids some toys and school materials and promised to send more when they get back to their home countries.
Dr. Aleksandra Lukaszewicz (wearing striped dress) is main coordinator at Academy of Art in Szezeein/Poland and Professor Flavia Stara of University of Macerata/Italy were two of our guests.
