The Home Advancement Program for the Poor and Indigent ("HAPPI") families in Antigua and Barbuda, is a program developed under the Ministry of Social Transformation Human Resource Development Gender and Youth Affairs. This program was developed to improve the living conditions of our vulnerable families in Antigua & Barbuda, to include but not limited to, single parent headed households where the parent was unemployed or under- employed, the elderly and the disabled after a major crisis.
My of our nationals are homeless and is physically unable to work because of heath reasons. Some may have lost their homes, because of fire or hurricane disaster, and cant seem to find there way back to a normal of proper living conditions.
Hence HAPPI not only transforms the lives of those who benefit from better living conditions but also helps in the rehabilitation of those who fall on the wrong side of the law and aids in those inmates developing a trade that they can use upon their release.
Better living condition for these families at risk. The student that are being effect, will get the opportunity to live a normal life, the proper and necessary tools they need to, to attend school and get a education which is so well deserved. We are pleading with nationals, colleagues, and all communities to get involved and support this program as much as possible. We need you to survive...
