Project Smile - We provide book and toy boxes to preschools across the country. These are preschools where children of local laborers and the underprivileged are most often sent, not because they are good foundation bases before school starts, but more for the food that the government provides every afternoon, free of cost. We also work out little vegetable patches for fresh vegetables for lunch as well as something the children look forward to looking after and watching grow.
We also renovate playgrounds, ensure there's proper infrastructure (where we aim to fix everything from water connections to electrical fittings for fans and lights as well as paint and fix buildings) so that children can spend their days here happy and safe. Why do we do this? Because, if our children get the opportunity to play and laugh and run in safe buildings, why can't they? It sure doesn't take a village!
