The purpose of embarking on the Happy Childhood journey is to offer every child the opportunity to enjoy a happy and balanced development, surrounded with affection and respectful of his personality, his talents, and his safety, so that his destiny becomes a smile won in the face of adversity.

The trigger and the beginning of this journey are, paradoxically, the end of a child’s life, Philippe Hatem who disappeared prematurely. Philippe’s smile and his focus on what really matters constitute the living spirit and the source of inspiration behind everything the foundation that carries his name does, making it unique in many ways. This uniqueness is captured in our foundation charter.
