4 Smiling Faces contributes to the realization of the SDG’s in this way:
4 Smiling Faces contributes to reducing poverty by supporting children in children’s homes in Nepal in word and especially in action. They have to deal with every conceivable physical, social, health and economic challenge that makes their lives difficult. We have been supporting them for years on their way to an independent future as socially committed and contributing citizens.
4 Smiling Faces contributes to reducing hunger by providing food and vegetable garden supplies when necessary to the homes and after-school program with which we have been working for years. This way the children (and their relatives, if they have them) do not go hungry and can even produce some of their own food.
4 Smiling Faces contributes to the good health and well-being of the children in the homes, after-school program and student that we support by always putting them first. Our first question is always ‘does what we doe really help them?
4 Smiling Faces contributes to quality education by giving a scholarship to young people who leave ‘our’ homes and after school program without any safety net. By doing so, the young people can go their own way and make their own choices. This breaks the cycle of poverty and despair.
4 Smiling Faces contributes to gender equality by not making any distinction between boys and girls. No one is the same, but everyone is equal; everyone deserves and gets equal opportunities!
4 Smiling Faces contributes to clean water and sanitation by realizing projects in our homes and after-school program that ensure clean and hygienic conditions for everyone involved.
4 Smiling Faces contributes to affordable and sustainable energy by realizing projects that ensure the use of solar energy and groundwater where and whenever possible.
4 Smiling Faces contributes to reducing inequality by not making any distinction on the basis of religion, belief, political opinion, race, skin color, sex, nationality, gender, (sexual) orientation, health status or marital status. No one is the same, but everyone is equal; everyone deserves and gets equal opportunities!
