DEVELOPMENT, SUPPORT AND INDEPENDENCE

WE WORK TO PROMOTE THE SOCIAL INTEGRATION AND EDUCATIONAL TRAINING OF WOMEN AND CHILDREN

Smile Project ONLUS by Elsa Michael is a non-profit association with the aim of carrying out charitable activities in relation to facilities for minors and associations in Eritrea.

Through targeted and concrete aid, the Smile Project promotes and supports projects of solidarity, livelihood and social development. We commit ourselves to Eritrea to save and guarantee a future for children,

Step by step, we implement restoration plans in needy structures to provide a home for children who cannot live with their families for lack of basic goods.

Our main projects include: the Asmara Children’s Orphanage in Godaif where basic necessities to maintain sustenance and to provide education are given to children. This includes the funds to pay teachers.
The Abraha Bahta School for The Blind which is a fundamental reference point of teaching for blind students.
The Eritrean National Association of the Deaf and Mute whose goal is to reintegrate the Eritrean deaf-mute into society through professional programs of sartorial training and education.
