About Smiling World

Our vision is to see the children of Sierra Leone grow up free of oral disease by providing them education; giving them self-esteem and the opportunity to increase their quality of life.

We are a child-centered organisation.

We travel all across Sierra Leone, reaching schools, orphanages and communities treating oral disease, paying particular attention to those in isolated parts of the country.

We work with other organizations and their communities, upholding children's rights to:
survive - by treating crippling and life-threatening oral disease,
develop - through a better quality of life and education, and,
participate in family and cultural life

Our Achievements So Far

--- Over 5000 children and adults have been treated and even more have been screened.
3500 toothbrushes donated.
--- 4000 painkillers and 1700 antibiotics given out, stopping would-be dental disease from progressing.
--- We have saved three children's lives by financially supporting them to have major operations until their are recuperated enough to go home.
