Smile Foundation supports initiatives on Child-focused interventions, directly reaching out to over a hundred thousand beneficiaries across 15 states of Federal India through various welfare projects.
Taking its commitment for children’s quality education and growth, Smile Foundation is organizing a programme, named ‘Smile Super Summer Camp’ in Delhi and National Capital Region.
Introducing Summer Camp
Summer is the time for children to take time off from the regular chore of going to school and getting down to the curriculum. So, the summer vacation is, in another way, an opportunity to horn certain life skills while having fun.
What can it Make a Difference
Children in the age group of seven to teen years are in the moulding stage. Right skills imparted now can help them shape their life and future. Smile Super Summer Camp has come up with ingredients to help children gain different life skills which will not only help themselves but also their surroundings. Saving water, sensitizing and helping fellow children in the immediate neighbourhood, maintaining a healthy dietary habit since such an early age, beginning to set clear goals in life, managing time, keeping discipline in day-to-day life, even sensitizing elders would be what the children are supposed to grasp through the innovative design of the modules.
