"A smile is free of charge, but works wonders"

This is what we do

Smiles of Hope supports local NGO projects in Cambodia.
We do this by supporting the digital development of ambitious and studious young people and then helping them to find a job. We donate laptops, study materials on loan, provide on-site training and ultimately look for clients in Cambodia and abroad.
