The Small Things is an NGO working with Nkoaranga orphanage in Tanzania, which holds 30 children from newborns to 5 years of age. We also run a children's village with family-style homes for kids who have aged out of the orphanage, and an outreach program which keeps children in families through economic empowerment and reducing maternal mortality. We welcome enthusiastic, dedicated and hardworking volunteers to join our team!
Our program includes volunteer socials, Swahili lessons, accommodation in a beautiful safe village, and more. You work directly with orphaned kids in our care, ranging from newborns to 9 years old, as a support for the local mamas. These kids will change your life! Let us know if you have special skills, like healthcare, education, social work etc.
As a charity, 100% of proceeds from volunteers go to the costs of your stay or towards improving life for our kids, and no profit is ever made. Visit our site for more on why this matters.
