The journey of Million Smiles for all always.

Covering 25 Valleys across Neelum, two Valleys of Jehlum (AJK).

This is the MSF School – DIB powered campus.
This is the 32nd School (free of cost education for children of remote mountain valleys).

There are two more schools for adoption, and any collaborations with more corporations would be welcome.
