SMILE Charitable Trust was founded by a group of classmates from Mountain View School Chikmagalur when we met for a reunion after a gap of almost three decades. During the course of the event, a few of us had the idea of taking some concrete steps to provide assistance for financially weaker sections of society. After much brainstorming, we came to the conclusion that the best way to do this would be to start an organization that facilitates to provide quality education to young people from underprivileged backgrounds. It was with this mission that we decided to form this organization SMILE Charitable Trust (Support Matters in Life Everyday). It took some time to agree on the name, but we decided to go with something that would be simple but at the same time project a positive energy. After all, a smile can work wonders.
