Charity description

Smalls for All logo
Smalls for All® is a charity which collects and distributes underwear to help women and children in Africa. For some people, pants and bras are an unaffordable luxury. But they can make a life-changing difference. For example, having pants can help teenage girls complete their education without having to miss school each month during their period.

The underwear we collect has gone to many countries including Ethiopia, Gambia, Ghana, Guinea, Kenya, Madagascar, Malawi, Sierra Leone, Somalia, Tanzania, Uganda, Zambia and Zanzibar. We partner with other specialist charities to help us reach those in need. This includes people living in orphanages, slums, IDP camps and schools, as well as those in hospitals suffering from medical conditions like obstetric fistula. 

At Smalls for All® we use the funds we raise to support our work collecting and donating underwear, and to help pay for the education of children and young adults too.

Our founder Maria Macnamara has received a 'point of light' award and been honoured with an MBE for her work with Smalls. She has also been awarded an honorary doctorate by the Open University.

Smalls for All® is a Scottish Charitable Incorporated Organisation.

Charity No: SC041689
