Target Group for these camps:- Helping girls from the underprivileged community( mostly refugees) of India to get basic education,vocational and hygienic training etc. Daily hundreds of families receiving support at our different centres around.
 
 Project Back ground :- India having uncountable numbers of street and slum dwellers . There are thousands of poor refugees coming every year from nearby countries and from different small towns and villages to the big cities and most of these families are living in a very poorly condition at slums or on street corners like insects.  Often these families bring their children to help them in begging ,household work ,rag picking activities, even some girls been forcibly thrown to the dark life of prostitution. So it is really a shame of the so called civilised societies. We have got our few projects for these unfortunate street girls to train them and bring confidence in them at our  different locations of big cities. Now there are opportunities available to help and support these unfortunate girls  of the street  in and around Kolkata (ccu) city.our target to bring smile on ever girls too. .Kolkata ,the city of joy was known before as Calcutta since the colonial time. This ancient city was used to be the capital of British colonial period. This city has full of heart ,people are basically belongs to the middle class . There are also rich and poor people all around . City Kolkata is know for its busy traffic ,huge population ,warm welcome and poverty around the street corners! It is a great place to visit for every tourist coming to India. 
 
Work & Activities :- Volunteer would use different way of informal educational teaching technique to present a unique and attractive way of education programs for these girls. . There would also be a workshop every evening when volunteers would prepare the next day lesson plan of action . For girls informal vocational training and basic English speaking teaching would be helpful . Volunteers would also help local coordinator in other activities like  food distribution, organising drama,cultural exchange, for these girls. Project would be run under the supervision of  experienced local project coordinator. Saturday and Sunday would be free days when volunteers can take rest or tour around the city or near by places.SMILE society always tries to give international volunteers a big scope to know about the local communities and understand the family environment.
