Book ‘Opgroeien in Tegenwind’

The 4 Smiling Faces Foundation made a beautiful book together with the Nepalese children we work for. The PODIUM is theirs: they draw and/or write about who they are, what moves them, what makes them happy, their hopes, dreams, plans, wishes, idols, ideas, and other things on their mind. They can say whatever they want.

The proceeds are all for them and for the children’s homes they live in. The homes can always use the extra money. With your purchase of our book you help us help them.

The book is supported by beautiful photos made by Ronnie Dankelman and Diana Putters, quotes of childcare staff, our highly appreciated volunteers in Nepal and many facts about the country and its people.

Will you help us to give them a promising future? The kids think it’s incredibly cool that their work has been published in a real book! And you really help the 4 Smiling Faces Foundation and thus the children.


The book costs 20 euros, including VAT and excluding shipping costs. Twelve euros per book go to the foundation and thus the children, because they come first. (Please note that transferring money to a foreign country can cost money; these costs are for you to pay.)
