Who we are
The Paradoxical Commandments by Dr. Kent M. Keith
People are illogical, unreasonable, and self-centered. Love them anyway.
If you do good, people will accuse you of selfish ulterior motives. Do good anyway.
If you are successful, you will win false friends and true enemies. Succeed anyway.
The good you do today will be forgotten tomorrow. Do good anyway.
Honesty and frankness make you vulnerable. Be honest and frank anyway.
The biggest men and women with the biggest ideas can be shot down by the smallest men and women with the smallest minds. Think big anyway.
People favor underdogs but follow only top dogs. Fight for a few underdogs anyway.
What you spend years building may be destroyed overnight. Build anyway.
People really need help but may attack you if you do help them. Help people anyway.
Give the world the best you have and you'll get kicked in the teeth. Give the world the best you have anyway.
Education, healthcare, and nutrition are the cornerstones of Little by Little’s mission. We not only provide support to those in need but also promote self-reliance and sustainability through educational initiatives. Seeing or hearing about a healthy baby, a well-nourished mother breast feeding, a child with the well-being and stamina to attend school, and parents providing their children with basic needs for a healthy start are what motivate us to keep our work going. We believe in reciprocity between our missioners, our donors, and our friends in Haiti. Our donors share these experiences through our photos, stories, and videos.
Our volunteer medical teams consist of primary care providers such as physicians, nurse practitioners, physician assistants, registered nurses, pharmacists, lab technicians, and lay people who have a heart of compassion and the willingness to learn simple medical tasks. Graduate level nursing, pharmaceutical, and medical students are integral members of our teams. There is no electricity in the clinic so we do our work by sunlight through open-air windows.
Little by Little’s efforts to relieve suffering, treat illness, improve nutrition and promote basic health care are focused in the village of Gramothe, where some patients walk for miles over the mountainous terrain to seek relief in the clinic. Teams of 20-30 members typically see and treat over 200 patients per day on the weeklong mission trips. If you are interested in joining a future team, please email email@example.com.
