Without an experience of happiness and a sense of wellbeing in our lives it is difficult to thrive and to become the best we can be.

Yet many of the images we are fed from the media about what it is to lead a happy life are far removed from a genuine understanding of what happiness is and how we can best experience it.

The 51st Independent Celebration of Gambian Community in Helsinki, brought Parents and Families together in this way to support evidence-based understanding of what actually constitutes happiness and wellbeing during the event.
