Brilliant, moving, tragic, and exhilarating. By far the best music video I've seen in years!  Thank you for this.

Incredible effort being made right now for justice and against extreme poverty of so many. (Amazing photos as well.)

I've seen a zillion of the Happy vids and just really enjoyed this one a lot! It actually brought smiles and laughter and makes me think Kuwait is a much funner place than I'd previously thought. (Loved the Ballet dancers!!)

Am looking at lots of Pharrell's HAPPY videos from around the world and you guys are some of the BEST!  I work with people with specials needs here in India and the US and loved seeing an inclusive dance vid! Congrats and best wishes. (Laughed happy tears!) 

P.S. Do take care of our Dr. George while he's in your fair wee country. :)

Story
Tagline
Optimistic Idealistic Frustred Curious Happy Flamable Hungry Compassionate Stubborn Quirky
Introduction
I have founded and direct a grassroots organization to promote inclusion of all children in education and community settings (with a focus on the inclusion of children with disabilities, girls, rural children, those living in poverty and members of indigenous tribal groups) which is located Wayanad District, Kerala, India. The organization is named Sangamam Society for Inclusion - "Sangamam" meaning "Together" or "Hand in Hand" in  Malayalam, the local language in Kerala.

Primary projects include:

  • training of teachers, therapists and others in how to provide quality inclusion
  • providing educational and therapeutic services to children in need at our model preschool programs and in neighborhood early childhood settings
  • early identification and diagnosis of disabilities and special need
  • family support and resource referral,
  • autism awareness, services, and referrals
  • hosting international volunteers and skilled professionals who visit India and provide services and/or training
  • an education/scholarship program for Indian university students to learn skills in education and therapy in the U.S. as well as in India
  • networking and working collaboratively with related service organizations, NGOs, schools, governmental and other programs in both the U.S. and India
When not working with Sangamam, which I do most all of the time when not sleeping, I like to read, watch quirky films (mostly foreign), spend time with my friends and pets, and enjoy traditional arts, photography, and music.

Any individual or organization who cares to help me promote a better world for children, is welcome to contact me.
