Mission

Founded in 2006, Happy Hearts Fund (HHF) rebuilds safe, resilient schools in areas impacted by natural disasters. We work during the gap period when children are forgotten after emergency response is complete, bringing hope and empowerment to generations of children and entire communities.

Happy Hearts Fund was created by Petra Nemcová as a response to the devastating effects of the 2004 Indian Ocean Tsunami. Globally, HHF is active in 10 countries and has rebuilt 162 schools and kindergartens. Since inception our programs have benefited more than 99,500 children and 613,000 community members.
