About Us

The mission of The Small Things is to provide comprehensive assistance for orphaned or vulnerable children and their families in Nkoaranga, 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. We support the orphanage caring for children up to age 4, run a Children's Village caring for children aged 3-15, a daycare for early childhood education, and a comprehensive family reunification program including entrepreneurship training and microfinance opportunities.


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."
