Our SMILE Partners
Alone, we can do little; together, we can do so much.
The founding motivation behind the SMILE initiative was to reach out to and build a true community of children, parents and families all over the world, thereby helping each of us remain connected in spirit and heart during a time when schools moved entirely online.
Schools and organisations working with children were invited to partner in the initiative, and spread the SMILE message in their communities. Nine schools, including one in the UAE and two organisations– one from the UK– responded with enthusiasm. Each of our partner schools and organisations are remarkable, with strong student and parent communities. The inter-school exchanges brought about by the SMILE partnership spark off ideas for projects, workshops and other collaborative ventures.
Students from partner schools get the opportunity to participate in SMILE, Together We Can Projects specially designed to encourage creativity, collaboration, initiative and community engagement. Partner schools receive an advance invite to the live stream and a select number of spaces are reserved for their students in participatory workshops and interactive sessions. This helps them engender both, a deeper understanding of themselves, and that of the miraculous Power of Community.
SMILES are regularly spread and exchanged across the partner schools and organisations. Do check our Instagram page to check out what’s new!
