Who could be more deserving of our help than someone who has no support?
Life of a widow, especially in a country like India; can be difficult especially when it comes to earning a decent living. It is difficult for a woman to lose her husband especially if he was the sole bread winner. Lack of support system in the family and the community makes it difficult for them to survive with dignity. Often children of such women are forced into labor at an early age and cannot complete their education, which in turn continues the cycle of poverty. Many of these women are uneducated and are unaware of their rights from the government.
Project Smile gives high priority to such women and their families. We accept monthly and annual sponsorships for widows. Your donations provide them with:
Education & training
Welfare & support
Nutrition & health
Assistance in compiling proper paperwork in order to receive government aid.
