Who we are


SmallWorld is a foundation that supports the children causes around the globe, we focus on children because they don’t have a voice. Every child has the right to exist, to live in a healthy environment to grow and to participate as an active citizen in society, where children can develop and realize their full potential. We support the children of the world by providing education through rehabilitation programs, academicals education, alternative learning, we also build libraries and nurseries as well as provide computers and learning programs. We believe that children are our hope for a better future; we support their education because we understand the importance of having a skill so that they are able to live independently free from abuse. After the completion of every project we get reports, pictures and videos. In addition our team members conduct visits to the charities that we support globally.
