On January 6, 2024, the board unanimously elected Jöggi Rihs as honorary president of Happytogo.


As owner of the Swiss Casinos Group, Jöggi Rihs supported and accompanied the project from the beginning, both as chairman of the board and privately. Without him, Happytogo would not have been possible in this form. 

With this choice, we thank Jöggi Rihs for his tireless commitment to our association, but also honor his diverse help and support for projects in Africa.
