Our Moon Shot
The term Moon Shot was coined when the Apollo program was being researched, developed and finally achieved. The creators dreamed the impossible and placed an astronaut on the moon. It was inspirational, credible, and imaginative, core elements of a moon shot idea.
HIPPY USA, has a moon shot idea, we envision a world where we do not discuss achievement gaps or academic barriers. You know why? Because they don't exist. Because we have done our due diligence by achieving our mission and vision.
We have equipped parents and caregivers with what they need to help their early learners reach their full measure.
It's the transformative vision that our founder Dr. Avima Lombard had as she watched children struggle, spoke with anxious parents, and listened to their concerns and found a way, the HIPPY way.
This is our moon shot moment. It is going to take the power of your dollars and your time to further move us toward that direction along with your belief that we can do it.
