The Small Things, Inc. (, an organization which supports orphaned and vulnerable children and families in the Arusha District of Tanzania. The group recently announced the opening of a new community center in Nkoaranga to provide holistic services to local residents. A full press release is below with more details.

The center is the latest part of the organization’s ongoing Family Preservation Program, which serves more than 80 children who have been kept in, or reunited with their families. The organization also cares for more than 50 orphaned children full-time at Nkoaranga orphanage and Happy Family Children's Village.

Along with housing a large library, which will host everything from after-school tutoring to adult educational programs, the new facility will be the first daycare provider in the area. With such a lack of daycare options, single parents and extended families are often forced into making a heart-wrenching choice between keeping small children, or surrendering them to the orphanage so they can work. Now, they will no longer have to make that choice.
