2011 NWCSS Playground

4SmilingFaces made the construction possible of the playground and planting a small vegetable garden at the grounds of the NWCSS orphanage. Before, the outdoor area was muddy (during the monsoon) and very dusty (during the dry season). But not anymore. Now there is grass to play on, walls to sit on, borders for planting.

Planting of the borders and the vegetable patch will be done in October when the dry season begins.

Thanks to other former volunteers there are other improvements too: For example, the balconies are now safe, carpet cover the rough concrete floors and outside area is enclosed by a stone wall.

4 Smiling Faces

Smiling Faces is the abbreviation for the Helping Hands 4 Smiling Faces Foundation, that was started by Tjitske Weersma in 2008. We improve the living conditions of children in children’s homes in developing countries with specific, small-scale projects in which they are central. We also support them when they have to leave those homes at 18 and have no safety net to fall back on. With us they come first. With our help they’ll go so much further, are they able to make their own choices and can they make shape their own lives.
