Who we are Our vision Smile International is passionate about helping to relieve suffering and poverty around the world through our FEED programmes – Feeding, Educating, Empowering and Developing. We are dedicated to giving hope to those in need and providing people with an opportunity to develop emotionally, physically, socially and spiritually. We are invested in transforming whole lives – body and soul – of the most vulnerable people by long-term development projects, regardless of religion or nationality as well as work in effective partnerships to make a real difference to those in need. Our vision is to see people and their lives transformed, for them to become self-sustainable, empowered and encouraged. There are so many needs and desperate situations around the world but if we can help even one person, by turning tears into smiles, that’s what it’s all about. God has called us to ‘bring good news to the poor’ and so we strive to share God’s love with those we work with. Smile International is run on strong ethical and Christian principles and it is a privilege to serve God in this way. We work to bring smiles to those who are struggling, feeling lost, hopeless and hungry. We want to see these situations turned around and for people to be given opportunities that they only dreamed of. Our aim for 2020 is to empower many more children and adults with life long skills to enable them to escape the cycle of poverty and you can help us to do so by joining one of our Sponsorship programmes. It costs just £25 per month, 83p a day, to Sponsor a Child with us and £20 per month, 66p a day, to Sponsor a Widow. A smile of happiness, a smile of relief, a smile of safety and a smile of hope, this is why we do what we do.
