Our goals as presented in our official papers:
Increasing the quality of life of underprivileged children and live in children’s homes and/or projects aimed at these children in developing countries*). They have fewer chances in life due to health problems, handicaps, being poor and/or suffer neglect.
By developing countries we mean countries where there is no government support for these homes/projects and little chance for fundraising locally. Stichting Helping Hands 4 Smiling Faces **) measures that make these children’s homes/projects cleaner, healthier and/or (socially) safer places to grow up in.
The foundation does all this with the conviction that all children deserve to grow up in a healthy, clean, happy en particularly (socially) safe environment. All children mean that we don’t differentiate on the bases of background, gender, faith, skin colour and/or health situation. That is the only way to become self reliant, independent and positive adults who contribute constructively to the community they live in.
The projects we finance will at all times be carefully chosen in close deliberation with the homes/projects in question. The choices are made together and always on the basis of equality and with respect for all concerned.
Whenever desirable and possible, we work together with other like-minded organizations.
*) Our focus is totally on Nepal.
