2018 SHCOP Dashain clothes

2018 SHCOP Dashain clothes

Work done
October 2018

What is the problem?
It’s that time of year again: the main Hindu festival Dashain start soon. Traditionally at Dashain children in Nepal get new clothes. For the after school program SHCOP it is impossible to honor 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 specially because they really need them. It goes without saying that growing children need new clothes regularly and if by doing that we also honour an important tradition: Great!

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.
