SMILE TRAIN - The Power of a Smile


left-imageSmile Train is an international children's charity with a sustainable approach to a single, solvable problem: cleft lip and palate.

Millions of children in developing countries with untreated clefts live in isolation, but more importantly, have difficulty eating, breathing and speaking. Cleft repair surgery is simple, and the transformation is immediate. Smile Train's sustainable model provides training, funding, and resources to empower local doctors in 85+ developing countries to provide 100%-free cleft repair surgery and comprehensive cleft care in their own communities. They use the “teach a man to fish" model focusing on training local doctors to perform cleft repairs in their communities. Those doctors then go on to train other doctors creating a long-term, sustainable system. Patients see their smile for the first time, parents cry tears of joy, lives and communities are changed forever. As a result of Smile Train's efficiency and with the support of their donors and partners around the world, Smile Train has transformed the lives of more than one million children by giving them the power of a smile.
