Smile Train Inc
Smile Train is an international children’s charity with a sustainable approach to a single, solvable problem: cleft lip and palate. Smile Train empowers local medical professionals with training, funding, and resources to provide free cleft surgery and comprehensive cleft care to children globally. We advance a sustainable solution and scalable global health model for cleft treatment, drastically improving children’s lives, including their ability to eat, breathe, speak, and ultimately thrive. Seeing the flaws in mission-trip-based models, we were the first cleft organization with a model of true sustainability. Since 1999, we have supported quality cleft care for 1.5+ million children and will continue to do so until every child in need with a cleft has access to the care they deserve.
