About Us

In 1969, George Small inherited Mpala Ranch, a 50,000 acre cattle ranch in the Laikipia region of central Kenya.

George loved Kenya, its land and its people. He provided funds to build schools in the area, sent promising young people to school, and helped to start the Mpala Mobile Clinic, now called Community Health Africa Trust.

George passed away in 2002. The Small Project’s goal is to sustain George’s vision for education, conservation, and health care in Central Kenya. Since we are deliberately a small organization, we have very little overhead and no salaried employees. As a result virtually all of the money we raise goes to support projects and people in Kenya.

The members of The Small Project are a close knit group of people from different walks of life who share one common goal — empower the disenfranchised to build a better future.
