Fosters Smile was developed in order to provide a chance for people around the world, who have been suffering, exploited or are at risk, to feel welcome.
What we do?
Well, a lot, but most important...
Welcome to our home
Fosters Smile is a non-profit organization that was created to help the poorest populations. Our mission is to provide humanitarian support in the poorest countries. In Africa, social problems and poverty are increasing as diseases are on the rise specifically referring to HIV / AIDS. When it comes to social problems, the number of orphans and vulnerable children with special needs is rapidly increasing.
Our main goal is to eliminate child prostitution, the exploitation of children, the abandonment of children, reduce the number of street children as well as providing school and life education for children and families in collaboration with our volunteers and humanitarian workers.
Cosmin Rovera and Henri Ologoudou manage activities for the non-profit organization Foster Smile based in Benin, in a small countryside called Bawjiasi.
Fosters Smile seeks to provide care and education for parents in need and vulnerable children in order to prepare them to confidently face the challenges in life.
Many children are abandoned due to poverty, or they become orphans due to parental illness.
Our vision is to create an environment, in which these children have the same opportunities to develop their potentials and contribute to society.
We provide food, shelter, clothing and medical care (if and when required). We believe that these parents and children deserve to be cared for and loved, away from harm and worry.
Most of the street children living in Benin are from the countryside and made their way to the city for various reasons.
Sometimes they just want to go home and they often go to the police station and/or the appropriate government office seeking help.
While the police are looking for their family in the countryside, we house, clothe and feed these children.
Once the family is found, Foundation Nadca will arrange for transportation back to their homes for reunification.
The number of children in this situation cannot be determined but the number is very high.

How YOU will be helping
Bordering the Gulf of Guinea in West Africa, Ghana was a British colony formerly called the Gold Coast.
Ghanaian children grow up mainly exposed to their local tribal languages, such as Ga, Twi, and Ewe, but English remains the country’s official language, and is needed to communicate with fellow Ghanaians in education and business.
