Happietaria is an initiative from the national organization Tear.
Throughout the year, multiple editions of Happietaria take place across the country.
A Happietaria restaurant is a pop-up restaurant that strives to make people conscious of a certain good cause and motivate people to contribute.
Every year, hundreds of students voluntarily participate in setting up- and running a restaurant.
Happietaria is open for one month and is completely dependent on volunteers and sponsors.
Every year, the profit goes to one or more projects in developing countries.
In Groningen the student associations N.S.G., GSV, Ichtus and C.S.F.R. participate in organizing Happietaria.
The 24th edition of Happietaria Groningen will take place from 22 November until 20 December 2018.
