Smiles for Kenya

Smiles for Kenya – report by Victor – 17th July 2013

Children at Destiny Garden School woke up to a wonderful surprise when they discovered that they would be the recipients of free toothbrushes, dental floss and toothpaste courtesy of ‘Smiles for Kenya’ and ‘A Broader View’.

All the children from Kindergarten Class 3 to Class 7 were given a toothbrush, dental floss and tooth paste, while baby class to KG2 were given pencils plus other toys like tiny bouncing balls and dice.

Oral hygiene is essential for overall human health as well as self-confidence. This initiative could not have come at a better place and time as oral health is often at the bottom of people’s needs due to other more life threatening situations faced in places like Mtongwe and its environs. Jacob and the teaching staff gave the children instructions on taking care of their teeth, and the importance of good oral hygiene.

The children were all delighted and grateful for this insightful and inspiring gesture by ‘Smiles for Kenya’ and A Broader View (ABV).
