Smile Train is an international children’s charity that provides 100%-free cleft repair surgery and comprehensive cleft care to children in 85+ developing countries. Our sustainable model empowers local doctors to provide cleft care in their own communities.
We use the “teach a man to fish” model focusing on training local doctors to perform cleft repair surgery and provide comprehensive cleft care in their own communities. Those doctors then go on to train other doctors creating a long-term, sustainable system.
Every child with a cleft needs more than just surgery — they may also need dental care, orthodontics, and speech therapy. Where these services are available, we do everything we can to provide them to our patients.
As a result of our efficiency, Smile Train has performed more than one million surgeries since 1999. Every 5 minutes, a child receives their life-changing cleft repair surgery.
