We are a group of energetic youth based in Bangalore with a strong determination to do something different and we work for the benefit of underprivileged children .
With our initial small group of four members , we used to conduct regular visits to various orphanages centered in Bangalore where we conducted small one day programs. From our interaction with kids during these visits , we came to know that with proper orientation and coaching , many of these kids could be mentored to become the promises of future . There are a large number of such orphanages in Bangalore where young professionals can really organize and work to bring about a difference in the lives of many. As we were a small group and being working professionals, we had a lot of limitations in reaching out to more of such places. It was then , that the thought of forming a new organization nurtured in our minds. We felt that through an organization , we could bring together more like minded and collaborate with existing organizations in our activities. As a result, we started 1000 Smiles to bring our goals to fruition.
A little bit of your time can make a difference - create A THOUSAND SMILES.
The PURPOSE OF LIFE is not to be happy.
It is to be USEFUL, to be HONORABLE, to be COMPASSIONATE,
to have it make some difference that you have LIVED AND LIVED WELL.
Join us on our outreach programmes.
Volunteer to take free tuition classes for the underprivileged kids.
Every time you SMILE at someone,
it is an action of LOVE, a gift to that person
, a BEAUTIFUL thing.
“I would rather have it said, ‘He lived usefully,’ than, ‘He died rich.’”
If your are ready to share a part of your riches with the needy and deserving , you can donate to us and be part of the work we do.
HAPPINESS doesn't result from what we get,
but from what we GIVE.
