Happy Baby is proud to support the SDGs:
The Sustainable Development Goals are a collection of 17 global goals set by the United Nations General Assembly in 2015 for the year 2030. The SDGs aim to end poverty, protect the planet and ensure that all people enjoy peace and prosperity. Happy Baby is proud to support the SDGs, and our programs are specifically contributing to goals 1, 2, 3, 5 and 8. Your charitable contribution can aid our work towards ending poverty and hunger. It supports our unique educational programs on exclusive early breastfeeding and gender equality. It helps us to support farmers and create income opportunities in rural villages.Contribute >
SDG 1. End Poverty:
If women in agriculture had the same access to resources as men, extreme poverty in the rural areas would be greatly reduced. Most of the income earned by a woman goes back into her family, to feed and educate her children. Happy Baby’s investment in the increased mobility of vulnerable groups, provides greater economic opportunities and benefits for rural parents and their newborns.
SDG 2. End Hunger:
Using a Happy Baby carrier when farming, helps increase women’s productivity. It closes the gap between male and female farmers, and grows their income potential. Happy Baby’s investment in small farmers supports increased nutrition, food security and production for local and global markets.
SDG 3. Good Health and Well Being:
Happy Baby’s promotion of exclusive early breastfeeding improves nutrition. It also prevents child mortality and decreases the risk of non-communicable diseases for children under 5 years of age. Using a soft carrier facilitates a close interaction and helps newborns bond securely with their caregivers. Securely attached babies grow into compassionate adults.
SDG 5. Gender Equality:
Happy Baby recognizes the disproportionate burden of unpaid care and domestic work placed on rural women. Through our educational programs, and the use of the Happy Baby carrier, we encourage fathers to take an active role in early caregiving. Happy Baby supports income generating opportunities to provide vulnerable women with a greater voice in economic matters.
SDG 8. Decent Work & Economic Growth:
Proceeds from the sales of carriers help our workshops grow and create more desperately needed employment opportunities. Through our programs, Happy Baby provides skills training, sewing jobs and income for tailors in rural villages.
