The Small Things
My Appeal
Over the next 2 months I will be walking 113 km (70 miles) (equivalent to walking up and down Kilimanjaro) to raise awareness and funds for The Small Things located and working with vulnerable children and families in Nkoaranga Village in Tanzania. Having just returned from my time on the ground I have been witness to the benefits of our programs and am passionate about the work our Outreach Team is doing. Spending time with families in their homes, hearing their stories, playing games with their children, sitting on a bucket while a Mama sheds tears of how she reached this point truly changes your life forever. I am only one person - but I am counting on your support as I walk for change.



Nakupenda sana (love)

My Cause
The Mission: The Small Things (TST) currently supports over 130 vulnerable children and families in Tanzania. Our first priority is family preservation, and we have kept over 100 children in their families, supporting them through microfinance, business training, providing school fees, and more. We also have about 50 children in full time, residential care, with newborns – 3 year olds at Nkoaranga Orphanage, and 4 – 18 year olds in loving family-style homes at Happy Family Children’s Village.

TST believes in building and supporting happy families, in all their various shapes and forms. We create sustainable, participatory and evolving care plans for orphaned and vulnerable children and families in the Meru district of Tanzania. Working with the community, we aim to empower our clients and bringing together small acts from around the world to create big change.

A $20 donation is enough to feed one child for a month, while a $50 donation will pay for a week’s loving care by a local “mama.” $100 covers microfinance for a new business, to help children stay in families where they belong, and $500 provides food for the thirty children’s village kids for a full month!
