Happy Hearts Indonesia (HHI) is proud to celebrate our 10th anniversary by holding a Happy Hearts Indonesia 10th Anniversary Dinner with Plaza Indonesia on March 8 2023. With the theme Back to School, this event was held at La Moda – Plaza Indonesia and won donations for rebuilding 7 (seven) schools in East Nusa Tenggara, Indonesia.

Attended by 170 distinguished guests, the event’s highlight was a live auction conducted by ISA Art and the renowned singer Vina Panduwinata.

Embarking on a new initiative with the #ReachHHIgher campaign, Happy Hearts Indonesia strives to make a more significant difference by enabling underprivileged children to access quality education by constructing secure, high-quality schools. As demonstrated by the introduction of Block Schools, built from recycled plastic, the organization prioritizes educational excellence and environmental sustainability to uplift communities.

Block Schools is the result of a collaboration between Happy Hearts Indonesia and Block Solutions, a company based in Finland which has developed environmentally friendly Block modules that can be used to build sustainable and safe houses and schools.

Over the past decade, Happy Hearts Indonesia has expanded its reach to remote areas and underfunded schools in Indonesia. It has successfully built more than 290 schools and has provided education and support to over 81,600 children with direct impact to 408,200 community members.
