The Small Things UK is a registered UK charity set up to partner with The Small Things (TST) based in Tanzania. TST currently supports over 130 vulnerable children and families in Tanzania. Our first priority is family preservation, and TST has 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.
The TST family preservation program has increased the reunification rate for kids living in the orphanage and children's village from less than 5% to over 50%.
With business development support, average families enrolled in our program can triple their income within 2-3 months.
At our community center, we run adult education programs, a day care, and a library open to the community and has allowed us to reach hundreds more adults and children in need.
We owe all of that success to our incredible donors. As we grow, we have the potential to make even more change, but we need your help to do it!
TST UK is a part of all of The Small Things’ fundraisers and campaigns, and we encourage anyone in the UK to set up their sponsorships and fundraising events through us. All the money goes to exactly the same place – the kids at Nkoaranga Orphanage, Happy Family Children’s Village, and the surrounding community! By donating through us, your UK donations are eligible for Gift Aid and you can donate easily in pounds.
We are asking a few of our key partners to rally their friends, family, and networks to support our work. By becoming a fundraiser for The Small Things UK, you will help more orphaned and vulnerable children and their families, and you'll help your friends feel good about doing good. Starting a fundraiser is easy to do, and it's fun! We'll even give you all the tools you'll need to make a difference. With your help, we can ensure a pathway out of poverty for hardworking families.
