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!

WorkCamp and special camp project details :-



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

Location :sealdah and around 

Living cost : Euro 200 /head ,it includes 3 times local food, shared room at local host family,car transportation to and fro project and  accommodation,airport transfer , drinking water ,wifi facilities 2 hours during weekdays , local coordinator support at every project,2 days through orientation , work shop training , Pre departure orientation , emergency support ,local language training also included.
 ( cost excluded :- Flight ticket, visa,medical cost if any personal cost ,weekends trip,special trip at the end of the camp ,gift,any special food / drinks ).

Duration : 2 weeks

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!

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!
