What makes employees smile in Smile Foundation?

At Smile Foundation, “Real Work, Real Change” is our ethos. Working on the ground to bring sustainable change is not easy, but in our country where more than half of the population is deprived even of its basic needs, this is where we must start. Before we debate on human rights, we must address urgent human needs. And this is what Smile Foundation has been tirelessly striving to achieve. Through intensive programmes based on education, healthcare, livelihood and women empowerment, we work towards bringing positive and long lasting change in the lives of children and their families.

People – committed, passionate individuals have always been at the core of all we do. Currently, we have a team of over 400 full-time professionals from diverse backgrounds working across India at our projects and offices. Here are some thoughts and feelings shared by Smile Foundation’s ex-employees:

I started off as a volunteer in Smile foundation in June 2013 and eventually joined them as a full time employee in September 2013. The thing I liked the most working for Smile was the flexibility the management offered to me in terms of Participating in activities and projects of different departments, and also the freedom they gave me to explore ideas of my own. I received support and encouragement from management to implement a volunteer management system, which I thought would make the functioning of the organization more efficient.
