What Makes Me Happy


A series of beautiful, captivating, short and fun films showing that even where lives are difficult children can still find happiness. Each film was made in its own country by working with local children. These are their own stories about what makes them happy, to be shared with children around the world.

What Makes Me Happy is part of a programme of work by The Ragdoll Foundation, an organisation dedicated to developing the power of imaginative response in children through the arts. At a time when awareness of cultural identity is more important than ever, these films offer the chance to be inspired by the strength and power of children who are living “against the odds”, and to share their cultures.
