SMILE Advocacy Campaigns
SMILE Foundation is committed to the welfare of deprived children born to less- fortunate parents. It is concerned with their upbringing - with at least basic minimum education, health status and inculcating in them importance of good character; a sense of pride; and desire and aspirations for "doing something in life ". The Foundation therefore looks forward to and remains willing to extend its hand of support to and form partnership with initiatives made towards these goals - whether by an individual or group of individuals or by more organised institutions (NGOs).
