CESVI - HOUSE OF SMILES
Children and young people in developing countries are exposed to myriad tragedies, such as poverty, hunger, violence, and exploitation. One source of happiness is their sense of belonging: friends, brothers, and fellow sufferers. This group is their only strength. At Cesvi we want to maintain and increase this sense of belonging. We therefore offer to everyone, without exception, shelter, care, and opportunities for a better life, within structures that we call the “Case del Sorriso” (House of Smiles).
A SPECIAL PLACE
Cesvi “Case del Sorriso” are friendly places in the most underprivileged areas. Here children can find food, affection, protection, medical care, psychological support, legal support, recreational activities (sports, theater, music, painting and much more), education, and professional training, all as a means to regain self-confidence and smile again as they look to their futures.
