Mission and Vision


Empowering girls, women and communities in the Himalaya.


The Small World USA works in Himalayan regions, including Nepal, to:

  • empower local communities by enabling self-reliance and active community participation in basic infrastructure projects and beyond
  • provide access to education for children, especially girls
  • support women’s empowerment programs

We envision a world where girls have equal access to education, where they are  given the space to grow through opportunity and the cultivation of confidence, knowledge and skills. We envision a world where local communities are empowered to be their own change makers. We envision a world where women are empowered to provide the positive impact that they are all capable of bringing to their families and communities.
