The Small Things Inc

Nonprofit or community organization

Last modified: November 6, 2014, 5:55 AM

Description

The mission of The Small Things is to provide comprehensive assistance for orphaned or vulnerable children and their families in Nkoaranga Orphanage and Hospital/Usa River, Tanzania, not only in moments of crisis, but with thoughtful and long term plans. Working with the local community, we aim to educate and assist our clients, primarily women and children, in becoming contributing, healthy, active citizens impacting their country and our world. Our projects include supporting nutritional and sanitation programs, coordinating the children's education, and building infrastructure and staffing levels both at the orphanage and its parent hospital. We are now involved in a major expansion of our outreach program and the creation of children's village. Our philosophy is based on a quote by Mother Theresa: "We ourselves know that what we are doing is just a drop in the ocean. But the ocean would be less because of that missing drop. We can do no great things, only small things with great love."
