SMILE Project details :-

1.Project :- Street children welfare project ( TE/ HC / SW)

Location :sealdah and around 

Details : India having uncountable numbers of street and slum dwellers . There are thousands of poor refugees coming every year from nearby countries and from different small towns and villages  to the big cities and most of these families are living in a very poorly condition at slums or on street corners like insects . Normal societies are so busy to deal with their personal daily problems ,so have little time for these unfortunate people. With every such family most number are children below 12 years including both girls and boys. Often these families bring their children to help them in begging ,household work ,rag picking activities. So it is really a shame of the so called civilised societies.   We have got our few projects for these unfortunate street children at the different locations of big cities. Now there are opportunities available in and around Kolkata (ccu) city.Kolkata ,the city of joy was known before as Calcutta since the colonial time. This ancient city was used to be the capital of British colonial period. This city has full of heart ,people are basically belongs to the middle class . There are also rich and poor people all around . City Kolkata is know for its busy traffic ,huge population ,warm welcome and poverty around the street corners! It is a great place to visit for every tourist coming to India. More over if anyone get a chance to live with the local host family then that brings extra bonus to any traveller .It helps to learn the culture ,tradition,language while staying within the normal people of the society.Living on any hotel can never give any traveller such wide scope to know the society and communities as a whole. SMILE society always tries to give international volunteers a big scope to know about the local communities and understand the family environment.  Smile Society (ngo) had started their activities since 2003 ! From the first day children from the street around its’ project area became the SMILE family members! Activities started with  washing,cleaning,cleaning cloth,cutting hair and nails and then basic education( pre-elementary ) / vocational training/art /craft /drama /language training /music training /other activities done for the children on regular basis. Once these activities over then lunch being distributed among the children at the project followed by different amusing games with the volunteers !! The international volunteers can have a scope to create game plan or vocational training activities for these angels. These projects are going the several places with the help of local community helper . We often welcome international workcamp volunteers and medium to long term volunteers to run these projects !! Volunteer can have a great fun to stay with the local host and learn local food habits/ culture/dress /cultural exchange programme on regular basis to learn each other as a part of the single SMILE family!! Volunteers would have great fun time altogether!

SMILE Project details :-

1.Project :- Street children welfare project ( TE/ HC / SW)

Location :sealdah and around 

Details : India having uncountable numbers of street and slum dwellers . There are thousands of poor refugees coming every year from nearby countries and from different small towns and villages  to the big cities and most of these families are living in a very poorly condition at slums or on street corners like insects . Normal societies are so busy to deal with their personal daily problems ,so have little time for these unfortunate people. With every such family most number are children below 12 years including both girls and boys. Often these families bring their children to help them in begging ,household work ,rag picking activities. So it is really a shame of the so called civilised societies.   We have got our few projects for these unfortunate street children at the different locations of big cities. Now there are opportunities available in and around Kolkata (ccu) city.Kolkata ,the city of joy was known before as Calcutta since the colonial time. This ancient city was used to be the capital of British colonial period. This city has full of heart ,people are basically belongs to the middle class . There are also rich and poor people all around . City Kolkata is know for its busy traffic ,huge population ,warm welcome and poverty around the street corners! It is a great place to visit for every tourist coming to India. More over if anyone get a chance to live with the local host family then that brings extra bonus to any traveller .It helps to learn the culture ,tradition,language while staying within the normal people of the society.Living on any hotel can never give any traveller such wide scope to know the society and communities as a whole. SMILE society always tries to give international volunteers a big scope to know about the local communities and understand the family environment.  Smile Society (ngo) had started their activities since 2003 ! From the first day children from the street around its’ project area became the SMILE family members! Activities started with  washing,cleaning,cleaning cloth,cutting hair and nails and then basic education( pre-elementary ) / vocational training/art /craft /drama /language training /music training /other activities done for the children on regular basis. Once these activities over then lunch being distributed among the children at the project followed by different amusing games with the volunteers !! The international volunteers can have a scope to create game plan or vocational training activities for these angels. These projects are going the several places with the help of local community helper . We often welcome international workcamp volunteers and medium to long term volunteers to run these projects !! Volunteer can have a great fun to stay with the local host and learn local food habits/ culture/dress /cultural exchange programme on regular basis to learn each other as a part of the single SMILE family!! Volunteers would have great fun time altogether!

Normal societies are so busy to deal with their personal daily problems ,so have little time for these unfortunate people. With every such family Grownup girls and married women ( mother of the children ) always have to face the problem in their daily life.Often these families bring their girl children to help them in begging ,household work ,rag picking activities, even some girls been forcibly thrown  to the dark life of prostitution.  So it is really a shame of the so called civilised societies.   We have got our few projects for these unfortunate street children at the different locations of big cities. Now there are opportunities available to help and support these unfortunate girls and mothers of the street children  in and around Kolkata (ccu) city.Kolkata ,the city of joy was known before as Calcutta since the colonial time.

1.Project :- Street children welfare project ( TE/ HC / SW)

Location :sealdah and around 

Details : India having uncountable numbers of street and slum dwellers . There are thousands of poor refugees coming every year from nearby countries and from different small towns and villages  to the big cities and most of these families are living in a very poorly condition at slums or on street corners like insects . Normal societies are so busy to deal with their personal daily problems ,so have little time for these unfortunate people. With every such family most number are children below 12 years including both girls and boys. Often these families bring their children to help them in begging ,household work ,rag picking activities. So it is really a shame of the so called civilised societies.   We have got our few projects for these unfortunate street children at the different locations of big cities. Now there are opportunities available in and around Kolkata (ccu) city.Kolkata ,the city of joy was known before as Calcutta since the colonial time. This ancient city was used to be the capital of British colonial period. This city has full of heart ,people are basically belongs to the middle class . There are also rich and poor people all around . City Kolkata is know for its busy traffic ,huge population ,warm welcome and poverty around the street corners! It is a great place to visit for every tourist coming to India. More over if anyone get a chance to live with the local host family then that brings extra bonus to any traveller .It helps to learn the culture ,tradition,language while staying within the normal people of the society.Living on any hotel can never give any traveller such wide scope to know the society and communities as a whole. SMILE society always tries to give international volunteers a big scope to know about the local communities and understand the family environment.  Smile Society (ngo) had started their activities since 2003 ! From the first day children from the street around its’ project area became the SMILE family members! Activities started with  washing,cleaning,cleaning cloth,cutting hair and nails and then basic education( pre-elementary ) / vocational training/art /craft /drama /language training /music training /other activities done for the children on regular basis. Once these activities over then lunch being distributed among the children at the project followed by different amusing games with the volunteers !! ThInternational volunteers can have a scope to creat game plan or vocational training activities for these angels. These projects are going the several places with the help of local community helper . We often welcome international workcamp volunteers and medium to long term volunteers to run these projects !! Volunteer can have a great fun to stay with the local host and learn local food habits/ culture/dress /cultural exchange programme on regular basis to learn each other as a part of the single SMILE family!! Volunteers would have great fun time altogether!

*Project :- Street Grown up Girls and Women welfare project ( TE,Art & Craft Training, Sex education etc.)

Location :sealdah and around 

Details : India having uncountable numbers of street and slum dwellers . There are thousands of poor refugees coming every year from nearby countries and from different small towns and villages  to the big cities and most of these families are living in a very poorly condition at slums or on street corners like insects . Normal societies are so busy to deal with their personal daily problems ,so have little time for these unfortunate people. With every such family Grownup girls and married women ( mother of the
children ) always have to face the problem in their daily life.Often these families bring their girl children to help them in begging ,household work ,rag picking activities, even some girls been forcibly thrown  to the dark life of prostitution.  So it is really a shame of the so called civilised societies.   We have got our few projects for these unfortunate street children at the different locations of big cities. Now there are opportunities available to help and support these unfortunate girls and mothers of the street children  in and around Kolkata (ccu) city.Kolkata ,the city of joy was known before as Calcutta since the colonial time. This ancient city was used to be the capital of British colonial period. This city has full of heart ,people are basically belongs to the middle class . There are also rich and poor people all around . City Kolkata is know for its busy traffic ,huge population ,warm welcome and poverty around the street corners! It is a great place to visit for every tourist coming to India. More over if anyone get a chance to live with the local host family then that brings extra bonus to any traveller .It helps to learn the culture ,tradition,language while staying within the normal people of the society.Living on any hotel can never give any traveller such wide scope to know the society and communities as a whole. SMILE society always tries to give international volunteers a big scope to know about the local communities and understand the family environment.  Smile Society (ngo) had started their activities since 2003 !
 

*Project:Painting /Construction of Volunteer shelter cum training place( RENO )

Location:- Madhyamgram
 Details:- SMILE always believes in family type of environment !! Organisation always trying bring all Volunteers living at the same city can have a chance to live together with the local volunteers as a big family . So this year we are expecting to start such place with the help of our host families. So we are in need of volunteers in group to help in painting and construction our dream place which is known as volunteer shelter. simultaneously our sincere effort to have animal shelter,vocational training shelter,  rain water reserver to store rain water for further uses. So our Renovation and painting project has a great importance on our different projects . We are trying to bring different activities at one place . Such shelter would be our base point to bring help around . Presently shelter is going on under the observation and guidance of local host family .   We welcome young energetic hard working international volunteers to participate in our RENO camps ! We also welcome groups to come and help us in construction and painting !! So for those who want to spend an exciting volunteer activities ! Please join this camps !!
