The Happiness Project Important informationWhat’s happening? We are creating an international video montage all about what makes au pairs happy, keeps them motivated, and what inspires them in their role! This video will be primarily in English, but if you cannot speak English, record it in your language and we will try to find someone to translate it/you can send us what you say via a google translated transcript. When is it happening?We want to publish the video by the beginning of November 2019.Why are we doing it?Au pairs are all from different backgrounds and cultures and have their own languages and customs. They then step into completely new environments, experience incredible growth and build unique relationships. This project is all about taking the positives from these experiences to help inspire, encourage and motivate others on their journey.
