What does V.Z.W. De Glimlach van een Kind?

De Glimlach van een Kind (English translation : Smile of a child) is small Non-Governmental Organization (NGO) with headquarters in East Flanders, Belgium.

We believe that in order to have a bright future every child has a right to a healthy start in life, educational opportunities and a safe environment. Our goal is to do whatever it takes in the socio-economic arena to put a smile on every vulnerable child’s face. We are currently empowering vulnerable children in grassroots communities of Fort Portal (Kabarole) district located at the Rwenzori mountain foothills in Southwestern Uganda.

Growing up on the streets, without loving care, guidance and knowledge, we are determined to transform the lives of these vulnerable children . De Glimlach van een Kind is providing a safe roof over their heads, access to education, nutritious meals and quality medical care.

With knowledge, proper care, attention and encouragement, we want to empower regain their rights, learn to stand on their own feet and pursue their dreams to become successful members of their communities.
