“Just a hand full in the picture but seeing them smile eye to eye was extremely fulfilling and heart warming {quite evident from my smile at least}. All these girls are aged between 10-12. At this age the drop out is maximum as parents choose to educate just the boy child as he will be the bread earner future. I believe more and more responsible individuals take up such great initiatives.- Sukhneet Wadhwa

“The number of disadvantaged children I would come across on my visits to India always touched my heart and made me want to do something about this unfortunate situation, and hopefully make a difference. I have been supporting Smile Foundation for the last two years now, by organizing awareness and fundraising drives with my friends. The good work that they have been doing constantly motivates me to do more.”

“Smile Foundation is doing great work. I am happy to make whatever contribution I can. The Diwali greeting which I received last year from the child whom I was supporting brought tears to my eyes and once again highlighted the support that institutions like Smile Foundation need from us. So I would request all the capable citizens of our country to contribute for this noble cause.”

“I congratulate Smile Foundation on the excellent work they have been doing all these years and for bringing a positive change in the society. I feel proud and privileged to be associated with Smile Foundation. All the best!”

“It is really important to support underprivileged children and their education. Just think of yourself without any family support and you will find answer why we should support underprivileged children. Smile Foundation has been doing a commendable job with these children and I am proud to be able to support them in this cause.”

“Coming here at Smile Foundation’s centre and spending time with the kids has reminded me of my own childhood. I feel what Smile foundation is doing is really great, this is what we need to do for our children; they need education to become responsible citizens of the country. I feel very privileged to be a part of this. Smile is now my family. Thank you so much for calling me here and sharing this with me. This is a wonderful experience, a very human experience. Thank you very much.”

“I visited Smile Foundation’s centre on my son’s birthday and this has been his best birthday. It felt really great to be here, connecting with the children. I have heard that if you can help someone less privileged than you, in whatever little way, everything else in your life also goes well. We feel very satisfied that we have been able to do something for these kids, for society. Thank you Smile Foundation”

“Children are the future of our country. Unluckily many don't get what they deserve. They also have dreams of their own. My best wishes for them and also for your organization which is working for their support.”

“In this world no child is born imperfect. Every life is a blessing and a hope for mankind. Education is the primary catalyst which transforms ignorance to hope. I have been highly impressed by the two most important issues that Smile Foundation speaks of in its effort to spread the light of education amongst the children of the underprivileged population in the country. It speaks of education as a tool to generate productive assets and also of partnership. I chose to be a member of the Smile Foundation family because here I envision a prospect to contribute to a better, healthier and enlightened India of the future.”

“I am an 11th grader from Chapel Hill, North Carolina. I decided to combine my passion for dancing and desire for community service and organized a fundraising Indian dance competition for teenagers in our area. I thought Smile Foundation India was the perfect organization to donate to because I strongly believe that every child deserves a chance, and every chance starts with good education and healthcare. All the dancers and contributors of this event had fun competing and donating to such a worthy cause. I know this donation will be put to good use, and my best wishes to all the children supported by Smile Foundation.”

“Anusha, our alma mater with the help of other students of the school, successfully raised funds for the education of children. The next task for Anusha was to identify children whom she could help with the funds raised. Being Internet savvy, she did a thorough research to identify charities working for the welfare of underprivileged children in India before choosing Smile Foundation for donating the funds raised. Since its inception in 2002, Smile Foundation has managed to reach out to two lakh underprivileged children through more than 150 innovative projects on education, healthcare and livelihood in 25 states of the country.”

“It is the duty of every Indian to do something for our country and our people. Your work is good and I am thankful to Smile Foundation which is working for poor people. Our vision & motive should be clear that every person gets food, cloth, education & home. I will be always in touch with Smile Foundation and whatever I can do, I will do.”

“I believe that education, not just literacy, is the tool for cleansing all social evils and suffering from India. With the power of education, we can eradicate poverty, health issues, negative behaviour, or anything for that matter. When I first heard about Smile Foundation, I believed in the approach it is taking. Now I have been supporting it through financial as well as technical support. I have one suggestion for all individuals who believe in charity and some good organisation or other - do not waste anything in your home or office. For example, you can even collect and sell old newspapers and support a cause you believe in.

“I am just 27, but have gone through many hurdles in life. I have realised that education teaches you first and then puts you to examination; life puts you to examination first and teaches you later. The only solution to all social and national problems we get to know from media everyday is nothing but basic and primary education. Though my contribution to Smile Foundation is small but I feel this is the roadmap to my dream and goal of helping all children get an education.”

“I feel poverty is in existence because people can't get proper knowledge and education. I am glad this little amount will be somehow helpful for a child's education. Hope Smile Foundation continues to do its best for the needy.”

“I have always believed that education is an effective tool for mankind to understand everything in a correct and broader way. I came to know of your organisation while watching a TV programme in which Smile children performed a few months ago. Later on I checked about Smile Foundation on the internet to convince myself further that we share the same views. Then I decided to join the Smile family because it's not only promoting education on its own but also supporting other genuine needy NGOs. This way benefit goes to larger section without wasting resources like time, manpower and money in building up bases in new areas and managing the existing ones. I think it's a unique model to reach masses effectively in less time and cost.
