Mumbai Smiles Foundation’s Smiling Bus Project was inaugurated on October 16 by Founder and General Director Jaume Sanllorente

18th October

For a city like Mumbai, it’s all about adjusting for space in a crowded city. This adjusting has resulted in relocation and rehabilitation of thousands of poor families, thereby taking away their Right to Identity, Right to Education, and Right to access healthcare. This is where Mumbai Smiles Foundation steps in, to address these issues and transform the lives of people living on the streets.

The Smiling Bus project will provide different health services, nutrition counselling and life skills education to over 3000 people living on the street. Over 100 street children and their families will receive informal education, as well as health and nutrition care.

Together with the Jump2Justice Project, the Smiling Bus will help 25 street children exercise their Right to Identity and access social services and resources.  The bus will travel around the city to provide medical check-ups for people living on the street; Borivali Station, Bhandup Dumping Ground, Wadala Station and Kamathipura will be visited.
