About Us

Small World is a Christian, nonprofit agency founded in 1985 in Nashville, TN for the purpose of preserving and enhancing the lives of children at home and around the world. As a response to James 1:27, through adoption we give orphan children the greatest gift in our power, a Christian family, thereby making them orphans no more.
