Mission

Formula Smiles Foundation is a 501(C)(3) not-for profit organization legally constituted in the United States, by Colombian racecar driver Juan Pablo Montoya and his wife Connie Freydell-Montoya. Our goal is through sports and sportsmanship to improve the quality of life of thousands of children in Colombia, who have been overwhelmed by poverty and violence . Formula Smiles is providing tools and life skills that will help these children strive for brighter futures and become important positive agents of change for Colombia and the world. Formula Smiles Foundation supports more than 5,000 children in five different Colombian communities. Each community has its own story, its own idiosyncrasy, its own vision and version of the trials and tribulations they have each faced. However they are all joined by a common denominator the desire to see smiles in small faces lighting up a more prosperous future for their families, communities and Colombia

Programs

We educate through sports. Formula Smiles seeks to offer a complete education and provide a healthier life style in an effort to obtain an integral development. We provide the children the opportunity to learn and strengthen core values such as teamwork, respect and dedication. Our program focuses in complementing their academic knowledge with physical education providing an integral formation. We use sports as a tool to motivate kids to stay in school, and gear them away from gangs, drugs and violence, motivating them to use their free time practicing the sports and sportsmanship skills they are being taught. Formula Smiles strives to engender sustainable development life skills to our children, increasing not only their life opportunities but of those of future generations. We adhere to the premise stated in the UN Human Development Report that states children should have the opportunity to "lead long and healthy lives, to be knowledgeable, to have access to the resources needed for a decent standard of living and to be able to participate in the life of the community." We strongly believe that through the practice of sports, sportsmanship and the encouragement of healthy community building physical activity. Formula Smiles is giving these children the basis and necessary tools to achieve the premises stated by the UN report. UNDP (2002) United Nations Human Development Re p o r t, p. 13.
