Humble Projects

Through our unique oral health projects, Humble Smile Foundation empowers communities to improve their children’s nutritional and oral hygiene behaviours to help keep smiles on the faces of kids that live in the most vulnerable areas around the world and who often have never seen let alone used a toothbrush.

Flagship projects are those projects conceived and managed by Humble Smile.
Support projects are those Humble Smile supports professionally with training, advice, volunteers or in-kind donations of oral care products.
