Working to Give All Children a Reason to Smile.

About Reason 2 Smile

Founded in March 2009, Reason2Smile Inc is a 501(c)3 US-based non-profit organization. A board of directors was created in March 2009 and the group of highly passionate individuals has met quarterly since then.  

Reason2Smile currently supports one school and orphanage in Kenya (Jambo Jipya Academy and Children's Home). If you are an organization in a developing country who supports orphaned and at-risk children and are looking for financial support, please view our "Request for Support Application" to see if you may qualify for assistance.  Your qualification will both be dependent on your organization's activities and the funds we have available.  Please contact us at if you have any questions or concerns.

Our Community


As a not-for-profit, we depend on the generosity of donors for success. Donors allow us to support our projects, both abroad and in the U.S. Without financial support, we could not continue the work that we do.

On-Site Partners

At Reason2Smile, our mission is to financially assist the projects that we believe have a remarkable impact on their communities. However, what is done with the finance is up to the people who run those projects on-site. People like Christine from Jambo Jipya work with what we are able to give her, and do amazing things with those funds. It is their work that really makes Reason2Smile have an impact.
About Christine


We work closely with schools to present learning opportunities to as many students as possible. Sometimes schools will have Keela present to a class, a grade, or even the entire school! These typically include a presentation about the work Reason2Smile does, a discussion with the students, and a workshop (t-shirt exchange, soccer ball decoration, fundraising planning, etc.). If you would like to have Keela present at your school, send an email to

Board of Directors

We run with a board full of energetic people who have dedicated time and energy to the organization. With quarterly meetings and countless emails in-between, board members are kept up-to-date with the ongoings of the organization, and are always happy to give their insight, opinions, and ideas that help make Reason2Smile run.
