2016 NWCSS New clothes & shoes

On the occasion of the main Hindu Festival of Dashain (in October) children in Nepal will traditionally get new clothes and shoes. The NWCSS orphanage can’t honour that tradition because there is no money for that. If nobody steps up to the plate, the children will suffer because they will be the only ones with nothing new to wear.

Therefore we will pay for the new clothes and shoes. Not only because of tradition, but mostly because they really need new clothes and shoes. It’s been a long time since they last got anything new to wear. Too long for growing children. The clothes and shoes they wear today are really old and worn and not easily cleaned anymore.

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.
