Smiles for CV Children

Hope Lives in their Heart

Smiles for CV Children want to spread our message of hope and compassion. We believe that a single action can make a difference in a child's life, and that collective action can significantly impact the world. Through advocacy and outreach activities, our team works each day tirelessly to contribute to lightening these children's future.

Who We Are

Smiles for CV Children is a 501(c) (3) nonprofit organization that works directly with thousands of poor  children across Cape Verde Islands. Our organization was founded in 2012 in the state of Rhode Island by a group of volunteers trying to reach out to children need by providing them with school supplies, clothes, food, medicine assistance, and toys for Christmas. We remain a all-volunteer organization that prioritizes these children's well being and assuring a brighter  future for them.

School Supplies Kit

Reinforcing Children's Education

Many children in Cape Verde don't have school supplies such as backpack, books, notebooks, pencils, and other supplies to go to school with. Others can't afford to pay for tuition or transportation and have to walk miles in order to make it to school. Yet many others go to school hungry. Therefore by assuring that they have what they need and making sure they are not hungry will boost their  school class attendance which in return will empower their education and brighten their future.

 Food/Clothes/Toys for Christmas

Helping with Basic Need

We believe that every human being is entitled to some basic needs such as home, food, clothes. Thus it is very important for us to provide these basic needs for  these children. We also believe that nothing puts a smile on a child's face more than toys, therefore, we believe that it's a necessary step to provide them with toys for Christmas with a finish topping of a lollipop.

Support with Medication

One Step at a Time

With this initiative, our goal is to promote great opportunities to those in need of help buying medicine, as many people in Cape Verde face the challenge of not affording to pay for medication. Many children suffer from mild to severe medical conditions, and unfortunately their parents cannot afford the medication needed. Therefore, ensuring that they are healthy also promotes a better future for them.
