Professional adventurer/mountaineer Wilco van Rooijen is ambassador of the 4 Smiling Faces Foundation since the beginning of 2018.He supports our work in both word and deed. With big and small actions and activities.

In his capacity as ambassador Wilco made an impressive attempt to climb the 8,586 meter high mount Kangchenjunga in Nepal in the spring of 2018. Doing so he raised lots of money. He wanted to be the first Dutchman to reach the top of the world’s third highest mountain and doing that without using extra oxygen. Due to extremely bad weather conditions and illness of a teammate, the expedition stopped prematurely but still managed to raise a lot of money for us.

As an ambassador Wilco want to draw attention to the vulnerable children in Nepal. Just like us, Wilco wants to offer them a bright future and a follow-up study after secondary school is the gateway to a promising and independent future. That is why the proceeds from his activities are spent on scholarships for children that have no one to fall back on.
