Just as Work Together Foundation carried out domestic project with the mission of relieving social polarization by creating jobs, the Smile Together Partnership project also makes creating quality jobs (SDGs 8) as its goal and supporting social enterprises in developing countries to resolve the fundamental issue of child poverty by creating sustainable jobs for their caregivers.
Solve the fundamental problem of child poverty through providing community-based projects in developing countries, to increase sustainable jobs in local communities to ensure stable livelihoods of caregivers.
