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 Vision
We believe all children deserve homes and families – poverty is never an acceptable reason for a child to be in an orphanage. The Small Things (TST) aims to create alternatives to traditional residential care for vulnerable children by keeping families together, empowering caregivers and communities and serving as an advocate for transition to a family-first model with options for residential care when reunification is impossible. We provide holistic support and resources through our Family Preservation Program which allows families to keep or reclaim their children through microfinance, business training, adult education, school support and daycare. We work in partnership with Nkoaranga Orphanage and for children unable to return home, we provide family-style, community-based residential care at Happy Family Children’s Village. These attachment-focused homes offer stability and a happy environment for children, surrounded by love and given the opportunity for a brighter future. TST brings together many small actions from around the world to create big change for children in need – because no effort is too small to make a difference!
