No. While Smiles mainly focuses their efforts on the younger generations (school children between the ages of 5-12) with the goal of impacting their future, the families and communities where they live are also reached.
In each project, hundreds of kids with their families and communities have access to programs we offer without any type of preference.
Smiles is a group of volunteers who have opted for a life of total service. The foundation doesn’t have any administrative costs, 99% of the donations are directly utilized in the projects, and 1% goes toward providing room and board. This is why all those who participate pay for our own expenses with the goal that this purpose is fulfilled. The minimum cost you will pay will be for room & board, food, medical missionary insurance, materials, and other basic necessities you might have.
