Smile Train Project

History

Smile Train was formed in 1999 with a model aimed at supporting professionals locally in developing countries and supporting them directly to carry out cleft surgeries. The idea was that it would be more efficient, less expensive, allow for proper follow - up care, and be a more sustainable solution than sending in Western medical mission teams.

India was the second country where Smile Train started work and it has become the most productive - the South Asia region celebrated its 300,000th surgery in late 2011. Smile Train's program in India now does more surgeries each year than there are new cleft births, which is a pivotal milestone to address the backlog of clefts in the country.
