In 2014, few friends from Redmond, WA came together with a common idea – to help children in need and help reach their dreams. We worked for couple of years supporting many charity and cultural organizations and decided to form our own.

Our idea is to benefit children who otherwise can’t afford to pursue their dreams. While there are many noble charities that are helping children pursue their dreams, Hopes and Smiles for children has one mission i.e. to help fund child care research and child care resources to underprivileged to pursue their dreams and build a bright future. -Vikram Garlapati , Founder
