Smile Malawi was registered in UK in 2004 and as an NGO in Malawi in 2006. The main objective is to provide a home for vulnerable street children. The first Smile Malawi Children\'s Centre opened its doors in November 2006 and gave a home to 11 children. It now has 21 children who were all previously living on the streets. The charity also helps the local community of Ndokota with a developing outreach programme, primarily targeting the village children and school.
