This is what the last two years have taught us, the hard way. The willingness to accept change and adapt to it, while still being relevant, has become a deﬁning factor for success of enterprises, businesses and even whole nations. The July issue of the Smilescapes takes us through some of these changing world dynamics, and how as an organization we are adapting and evolving everyday to persevere in our mission of empowering the underserved.
The Cover Story talks about how changes in climatic conditions affect the health of people across the world, with the vulnerable groups in the developing nations being the worst sufferers.
Special Feature gives you a glimpse into our vocational and skill training initiative for adolescent girls in Rajasthan, preparing them for not just the current job market, but also the curve balls that the future might throw their way.
In Focus throws light on how different groups of people have been affected during the pandemic and highlights some of our efforts to help them cope during this difﬁcult time. The articles talk about the challenges as well opportunities in front of privileged children, their lesser privileged counterparts, and grassroots NGOs and CBOs, and Smile’s efforts to handhold and empower each of these groups in unique ways.
Civic Driven Change focuses on vital partnerships during the reporting period where members of the civil society – individuals, media, corporate joined hands with us, becoming our support and motivation to achieve what we could.
Smilescapes captures select handpicked moments from our journey of change that became our motivation to keep going. Hope you ﬁnd these stories equally inspiring.
