Smiles that rival hollywood

By 5 years ago
Categories Pokhara
It’s great to see that although the majority of these children lead impoverished lives, they still have a smile on their face every time they see you. At times, daycare can be testing, what with kids wetting themselves, fighting or constantly crying. However at the end of the day, the volunteers will always have an exhausted yet triumphant smile upon their face. Although, Nepal doesn’t have the greatest dental service, we are attempting to do our bit by supplying the daycares with a tooth-brushing chart. They may not be a great work of art but our handmade posters serve their purpose well enough; for every time a child brushes their teeth after lunch, they receive a sticker to attribute to their name on the chart. We hope that in the weeks to come, the chart will become abundant with stickers and the toddler’s teeth will rival those of Hollywood.
