Happy Birthday

Every year on June 1, the International Day of the Child, Holt sponsors celebrate the children they support around the world by partnering with us to throw a big birthday bash! 


In Cambodia, 365 children enjoyed balloon games, friendship-building activities and dancing and singing. They received special treats, and basic necessities like soap, toothpaste and toothbrushes.


In Thailand, 80 primary school students went on a field trip to the Royal Thai Armed Forces Headquarters! “HSF is very thankful for the kind sponsor donation,” says Jintana Nontapouraya, director of Holt Sahathai Foundation (HSF). “These special gifts have made it possible for HSF to help widen the world for the students.”


In India, children ages 2-12 performed songs and dances, and received special prizes, coloring books, crayons and pencils. “They were able to celebrate this event with such joy,” writes our partner in Bangalore, Vathsalya Charitable Trust.

philippinesIn the Philippines, 381 children from six daycare centers sang and danced and ate peach mango pies! “They were all excited and happy with the gifts,” staff reports. “The parents expressed their gratitude to our local partner, Kaisahang Buhay Foundation (KBF), and Holt International sponsors for helping with this annual exciting activity.”


In, Uganda, 150 sponsored children performed dances and songs, ate a three-tiered purple-frosted birthday cake and had soda pop and treats.
