Who we are

Our Aims

ChennaiSmiles is a non-profit organisation, registered in Sweden, with an aim to promote education among underprivileged children living in South India. It all began in a slum area in Chennai.

We work on a small scale with local organisations on a grass-roots level. Working on a small scale enables flexibility and monitoring in order to optimise use of resources, on a needs basis rather than supplying funds without a goal.

We believe that a little money and a lot of motivation can go much further than a lot of money without a vision.

Our work is completely voluntary and all contributions go 100% to the project.

Who we help

ChennaiSmiles works for underprivileged children, primarily in slum areas in Chennai, South India. 

Chennai is the capital city of the Indian state of Tamil Nadu. It is the fifth largest city in India.
