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!

WorkCamp and special camp project details :-

1.
Project :- Street children welfare project ( TE/ HC / SW)
Location :sealdah and around 
Living cost : Euro 150 /head for direct applicants( it includes 3 times local food and shared room at local host family. 
(Flight ticket, visa,medical cost if any,personal cost if any,transportation cost are volunteers’ own responsibility)
Direct applicants required to pay the living cost Euro 200/head / 1-2 weeks camp.

Duration : 1-2 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!

Details:- SMILE always believes in family type of environment !!

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.

WorkCamp and special camp project details :-

1.
Project :- Street children welfare project ( TE/ HC / SW)
Location :sealdah and around 
Living cost : Euro 150 /head for direct applicants( it includes 3 times local food and shared room at local host family. 
(Flight ticket, visa,medical cost if any,personal cost if any,transportation cost are volunteers’ own responsibility)
Direct applicants required to pay the living cost Euro 200/head / 1-2 weeks camp.

Duration : 1-2 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!

!! Bring SMILE all around !!

Festival and street children India !!

Posted on Updated on


Festival and street children have very close connection in the country like India ! Through out the year these children been neglected by the whole so called normal citizen of the country ! Obcourse there are some organization like SMILE Society (www.smilengo.org) trying to looking after these kids on regular basis but their problem is deeply rooted with the socio economic problem of the country !!
There are not enough or organised system to bring enough support for these kids 😦
SMILE is running a regular welfare activities through the volunteers !
But the requirement of international volunteers is never been sufficient as per the demand !!
Long term volunteers and group volunteer supports are really an integral part of the project!!
India is a country of festival ,people of the country celebrate numerous number of festival around the at the different part of the country!!
These festivals bring the brotherhood,love and affection among communities.
But these festivals had never made any significant change among these needy little soul. It is just another days when they lead their life under insecurities and social disrespect.


There are some part of the communities and festival organisers who bring supports for these children during the festival time but these supports are for only one or two days which are really insufficient to these communities.
