2017 SHCOP Bathroom

2017 SHCOP Bathroom

Work done
March/April 2017

What is the problem?
Many of the children in the program can’t wash themselves at home. Therefore they regularly have to take a shower in that same private bathroom of the family.

What is the solution?
The solution is to build a shower and washbasin on the ground floor.

What is the result?
The SHCOP can function independent, separate from the private space of the family. Family and business are seperated. And the new toilet is Nepali style, exactly what the kids are used to.

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.
