The Happy Kids Program

Ra’s Happy Kids Program aims at enabling children from particularly vulnerable and underprivileged backgrounds to develop their social and academic potential as a key to happiness in life. We partner with reputed NGO’s like Akanksha, Teach for India, CORP and others to identify children who are in most need of our intervention.

The Foundation enables transformation in children by providing them access to a safe, caring and motivating environment as well as to high-quality education through the residential schooling format. Further, the Foundation offers regular counseling support, health support, keeps in touch with the children during summer vacations and interacts with parents/guardians and school authorities. The program continues to support the kids till the end of their academic cycle so as to ensure that they are financially independent.
