SunnyKidsSunnyKids has evolved from providing crisis accommodation under the name of Najidah in 1999 to designing and delivering award-winning support service and education programs across a wide range of schools and communities.
At the heart of all SunnyKids’ programs is a solution based concept called the ‘SunnyKids Virtual Village’ which allows contemporary Australian communities to apply the old adage that ‘it takes a village to raise a child’.
Having said that, in many ways little has changed. Everything SunnyKids did in 1999 was about gathering the community (or village) around kids and families in need. The only difference today is we are doing it with a lot more people in a lot more places!
