The Child´s Happiness Organization (THE CHAPP) is a community based charitable and non-profit making organization with its base in Naivasha, Kenya. In 1986 it was founded by Agneta Bwire, citizen of Naivasha, who experienced the poverty of the children and felt the strong desire to help. Starting with limited resources, THE CHAPP has developed over the years and is now officially registered with the Ministry of Gender, Children and Social Development of the Republic of Kenya as a Self-Help Project.
