Armed with such Vision and Mission with spirit to make a difference, Smile has chosen key thrust areas for intervention support. These are:

Under education, Smile strives to promote and catalyze universal education among children from under-privileged section of society.

Acknowledging the significance of a healthy child, Children's health becomes an issue of vital concern to Smile; and health awareness an integral part of child education.

Smile with its commitment for supporting child welfare initiatives, undertakes on its own various campaigns from time to time on social issues relating to children and/ or enabling children to become catalyst for change. It also encourages such advocacy efforts undertaken by its partner organizations.

In its endeavor to achieve its mission through key thrust areas, Smile supports projects in partnership with individuals and institutions. Besides financial assistance, support is also extended in the spheres of training and materials, infrastructure and organization development. The various types of support extended by SMILE are as follows:

 

  • Supporting innovative, need based projects - from concept development to infrastructure development and project management.

Catalytic activities such as
- capacity building (institutionalization of individual / un- organized initiatives),
- technical backstopping / training
- infrastructure strengthening
- logistics support (for quality of services).

  • Initiating awareness campaigns on issues concerning children and youths

 

  • Soliciting individual and community support and contribution - for the cause of the underprivileged children - through its ongoing campaign - "YOU CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE".

 

  • Supporting projects exclusively focused on girl child / adolescent girls, their socio-economic empowerment.

 

  • Supporting health care services - on an on-going basis - through camps.

Further Smile is also concerned about sustainability of initiatives supported by it. It therefore very consciously guides, encourages and supports resource raising efforts of it's partner organizations. Also for the purpose, Smile, in-house, has, of late, established a Resource Cell at its head office in Delhi with objectives of facilitating resource raising for attaining sustainability of projects hitherto supported by it. One of the major objective(s) of the Resource Cell is to explore CSR opportunities with Corporate houses and facilitating functional linkages with partner organizations leading to programme support
