First it was their children. Now, Smile Train partner GSI is giving cleft moms unimagined opportunity, too.
Surgery is only the beginning. Smile Train and our partner Grassroot Smile Initiative are teaching mothers of children with clefts in Nigeria entrepreneurial skills so they can keep their families healthy and afford to send their children to school. When a child at risk of being left behind is empowered to attend school, eat well, and smile, they believe they can achieve anything. That’s cleft care beyond surgery. That’s Smile Train.
