About Us

The Small Things strives to keep vulnerable and orphaned children in the Meru District of Tanzania in their families by creating sustainable, participatory and evolving care plans for their future. For those families most at-risk, we provide loving residential care in an effort to further strengthen the community’s long-term capacity. Our hope is to live in a world where residential home are no longer needed and kids can always stay with their families. Working with the local community, we also aim to educate and assist our clients, primarily women and children, in becoming contributing, healthy, active citizens impacting their country and our world. We run a Children's Village caring for children aged 2-15, 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."
