IGNITE YOUR SMILE!

Weneed to build connection and lighten up the hearts of our Girls with our SMILES!

Smile is fast eroding in our day-to-day interaction majorly due to the challenges that every individual face at home, at work, on the roads, in the market place, etc.

Smile helps us connect to each other. The disconnection between the older women and the girls is becoming wider everyday.Therefore, when the girls are faced with challenges, they have no one to turn to; to confide in, for counsel and encouragement. They are left to the mercy of wolves taking advantage of their innocence, naivety and vulnerability.

Around us are Girls that are subject to various forms of abuse; physical, mental, emotional and sexual abuse. Girls that feel insecure. GIrls who feel less about themselves. Girls who have lost hope about tomorrow, etc.

The first step towards rescuing our girl is by lighting up their fearful or broken hearts with a SMILE!

When you smile at them, they don't just see your teeth, they see arms to run into for succour and protection at their trying period.

Therefore, we are all on SMILE mission to light up the heart of our girls!

Hi AyoOluwa. Thanks for sharing your story about smiling. I totally agree that smiles, especially genuine ones, can make or break someone's day. It's sad that you're saying not that many people smile in your region. I feel like it can be a cultural behavior, but also an individual's preference. Certain cultures definitely smile more than others. Hopefully more people will continue to do so again, soon.
