ATTENTION family and friends,
As most / some / none of you may know, for the past 5 years, ourselves, Damien and Ana Laura together, have been working towards bettering families and children lives at The Small Things Orphanage in Nkoranga, Tanzania, Africa.
This coming month on Tuesday 3rd of December The Small Things Orphange is hosting:
We (Damien and Ana Laura) have signed up as fundraisers where we have set up a Gofundme account linked directly to The Small Things Orphanage in Tanzania , and we would love your support.
Giving Tuesday is about fundraising for 30 families currently supported by TST (The Small Things). Your donation will empower these hardworking families to succeed, through TST's services of: provision of business development and training, medical care, educational workshops, and educational support as needed, as well as ongoing follow up and individualized care planning by TST's skilled team of Tanzanian social workers.
Money goes a long way in Tanzania - to support a family only costs:
- $18 will cover a family's school expenses for a month
- $72 will provide medical treatment for a family for a year
- $190 will provide business support for a family for a year.
- $500 will cover all medical, school and business support costs for a family for a year.
With our team goal of $1500 USD, EVERY dollar you give before the end of the 3rd of December will have its impact, up to TST's main goal of $10,000 USD!
The Small Things is a small non-profit working to keep families together and believe that poverty alone is never an acceptable reason for a child to be placed in an orphanage.
Within a year or two, most families are running sustainable businesses and are able to graduate from the program, no longer needing support!
PLEASE Donate to our team today. Often, a little bit of support and access to opportunity can keep a loving family together - and it takes far less than you might think!
