Micro-Humanitarian Instant Impact


The Small Projects Team

There is a huge number of humanitarian micro-projects in Ukraine, often created by individuals, sometimes victims themselves, in response to an emergency or a specific need. These projects are often not structured as an organisation and have little access to funds outside of the first circles of acquaintances. If today social networks can help these initiatives to acquire a certain visibility, it remains very difficult for them to get known and to receive aid, notably due to the desire of donors to ensure that their funds are used on the ground. The Small Projects Team's mission is to help beneficiaries set up their projects, raise funds, provide logistical support and report on the use of funds on the ground.

  • Recognized association of general interest

  • ...And 100% volunteer

  • The donations you make entitle you to an income tax reduction in France equal to 66 % of the amount paid within the limit of 20 % of taxable income.

  • TSPF relies solely on volunteers and donates 100% of your donations.

Born in the field, from the meeting of international volunteers in Ukraine, Poland and France, The Small Projects Team's mission is to have a direct and rapid humanitarian impact by creating and animating field projects and by providing donors with detailed monitoring and reporting on the impact of their donations. We work on projects up to a budget of the equivalent of €25,000. These projects can cover a wide range of sectors (children, evacuations, medical, etc.) and can also involve entrepreneurial projects as part of the reconstruction of affected areas. In all our actions, we subscribe to the fundamental values of humanitarianism, and are non-religious, independent and non-political.

We aim to bring speed and transparency to humanitarian financial flows. Our project selection process is strict and we ensure the legitimacy of the projects to avoid any form of scam. Once the funds are received, they are sent to the field as quickly as possible. We then obtain the expenditure tables with supporting documents, which we integrate into illustrated reports communicated to our donors.

We guarantee project leaders a precise study of their needs, and sympathetic support in their application process. Once the application is complete, we guarantee a decision within 3 days. In the same spirit, we guarantee our donors that their funds will be sent to the field as quickly as possible in order to maximise their impact, if necessary with the help of partners that we have carefully selected. Our organisation is 100% voluntary and all funds raised are returned to the beneficiaries.
