Маленькая Земля (Little Earth) is an environmental organization that was founded in 1997 by a group of young activists in Tajikistan. It is a flexible and mobile organization with a creative approach to solving traditional environmental problems.

In 2006, Little Earth began work on the thermal insulation of schools in remote mountain settlements, as well as introducing energy efficient solar parabolic cookers. In 2008, together with partners from Norway and Nepal, SHE launched an initiative to introduce energy-saving stoves in Tajikistan. In the same year, the first solar photo panels were installed for a lighting system in a small school.
