Dashain clothes


October 2021

What is the problem?

It’s that time of year again: the main Hindu festival Dashain starts soon. Traditionally at Dashain children in Nepal get new clothes. For the after-school program SHCOP it is impossible to honour the expectations of the children. There is no money for things like that.

What is the solution?

4 Smiling Faces will honour this important tradition

What is the result?

All the kids have new clothes and shoes: for many of them, it is the first time that they ever get something new, and they are suitably impressed. 4 Smiling Faces does this not only because it is tradition, but especially because they really need them. It goes without saying that growing children need new clothes regularly, and by doing that we also honour an important tradition: Great!
