ABOUT PROJECT SMILE AFRICA
This is a community based project, reaching out to children in a bid to create better societies across Africa once every year. #ProjectSmileAfrica targets poor communities, and provides books, clothes, shoes toys, to mention but a few for the children. As the project expands, we hope to be able to embark on bigger community projects sequel to anticipated increase in our donor and volunteer base.

As a project reaching out to the socio- economic needs of children in Africa between the ages of 0-19 through education and empowerment, we are a group of professional volunteers and we implement project tailored to our research and expert analysis world wide.

PSA works with volunteers including professionals and donors to bring each community tailored project to fruition. We believe that little consistent changes can change the world, putting as little as a smile on a child’s face can change their life forever. We in the nearest future, want to partner with major regional bodies with common goals like the United Nations to bring hope to these children. Help us give the little things.

HIGHLIGHT OF PSA PAST LIFE CHANGING GIANT STRIDES

“Adesewa Josh and Project smile Africa Team tackle sex and adolescent pregnancy at “Talk to your Teens” Event”

We officially launched last year, when we visited the police barracks in Ikeja to cater for over a thousand kids. we have now embarked on a five year campaign called Talk2urteen to create awareness about the dangers of adolescent pregnancy, and engage the girls in different communities and secondary schools on appropriate sex education.
                        
On the 3rd of December 2014, our Talk2urteen campaign kicked off with over 400 secondary school girls, as our team of professional volunteers engaged them in meaningful conversation about sex, the danger of adolescent pregnancy, also about their health and the importance of education.

Our main objective throughout this campaign is to support and inspire the girl child, encouraging her to prioritize her education and steer clear of adolescent pregnancy, which is said to be the number one killer of teenage girls worldwide, but more rampant in developing countries; an experience that also reduces substantially the chances of a bright future for the girl. We at PROJECT SMILE AFRICA know that adolescent girls hold the key to a world free of poverty. We have a team of professional volunteers across Africa who are blazing the trail in their countries, and we are open to more volunteers interested in leading the initiative in their countries.
