Empowering children, families and communities in Tanzania

The Small Things integrates high-quality, loving, community-based residential care with a comprehensive family preservation program. That means keeping children in homes where they belong, caring for them when their families can’t and helping reunite them with relatives after leaving our care.

The Problem

0+ Tanzanian women still die in childbirth every year
0% of Tanzanian children have lost one or both parents
0% of children entering orphanages are expected to return to family without support

TST’s Impact since 2013

0+ kids given loving homes at Nkoaranga Orphanage and Happy Family Children’s Village
0+ children supported at home through The Small Things’ Family Preservation Program
0% of children in our care are now returning home by age 5, with TST’s support
0% of residential kids will eventually return home, through our programs
