What is the problem?
The most important Hindu festival of Nepal is approaching: Dashain. Traditionally, on this occasion, children in Nepal receive new clothes from their families. This is not possible for the children of the SHCOP after-school program, because there is no money for that. And the program has no money for extras.
What is the solution?
4 Smiling Faces makes it possible to honour this important tradition for these deserving children.
What is the result?
All children are fitted with new clothes and shoes. For many of them, it is the first time that they get something completely new, and they are very impressed. 4 Smiling Faces does this not only because it is tradition, but also because they really need it. It goes without saying that growing children regularly need new clothes, and if we honour an significant tradition, that is a nice bonus.
