Smile Train is an international children’s charity with a sustainable approach to a single, solvable problem: cleft lip and palate.
Millions of children in developing countries with untreated clefts live in isolation, but more importantly, have difficulty eating, breathing, hearing, and speaking. Cleft repair surgery is simple, and the transformation is immediate. Smile Train’s sustainable model provides training, funding, and resources to empower local doctors in 85+ developing countries to provide 100%-free cleft repair surgery and comprehensive cleft care in their own communities.
Smile Train uses the “teach a man to fish” model focusing on training local doctors to perform cleft repairs in their communities. Those doctors then go on to train other doctors creating a long-term, sustainable system.
Patients see their smile for the first time, parents cry tears of joy, lives and communities are changed forever.
As a result of Smile Train’s efficiency and with the support of donors and partners around the world, Smile Train has transformed the lives of more than one million children by giving them the power of a smile.
- Globally, 1 in every 700 children is born with a cleft lip and/or palate. Clefts are the leading birth defect in many developing countries.
- Smile Train leverages technology and innovation to help train local partner surgeons. They are provided with resources that enable long-term sustainability.
- In addition to cleft surgery, Smile Train provides critical pre and post-operative comprehensive cleft care for patients.
Since inception, Smile Train Africa has helped more than 92,000 children receive not only new smiles, but second chances at life. With active programs in 28 countries, Smile Train Africa is helping to change the world one smile at a time.
