Marcia McBroom-Small began her career as a dancer, actress and fashion model. As a result of a modeling assignment in London for the Nigerian market promoting “Lux Soap”, she portrayed the character “Susie Martins”.    
 Marcia McBroom as "Susie Martins" promoted  breast-feeding.

During her travels to 35 countries throughout Africa, North America, Europe, Asia and the Caribbean as a performer, and later as a Goodwill Ambassador, Mrs. McBroom-Small realized many simple ways to bring about improvement in the lives of the people she visited. She realized how we, as American citizens take so much for granted.  Based on these experiences, she has dedicated a significant portion of her life to working at making a difference in a world where so many suffer needlessly.  Mrs. McBroom-Small encourages young people to see themselves as “Global Citizens”, empowered to make positive change in society through grassroots actions and deeds. She wanted to inspire young people with the knowledge and understanding that they can indeed create the world that so many envision.

Following this affiliation, she was asked to serve on the board of the NY Metropolitan Committee for UNICEF for 16 years. During that time, she went to West Africa as a Goodwill Ambassador for UNICEF to Burkina Faso and the Ivory Coast under the invitation of the now late President Thomas Sankara. 

Marcia McBroom-Small, a James Madison Fellow, has worked tirelessly as an educator and activist, to promote her vision of global awareness and international cooperation. She currently serves as a consultant for the N.Y. State Department of Education.  For Our Children’s Sake Foundation looks forward to many more years of dedicated service to the people of our global community.
Marcia McBroom-Small, Ms. Rachael N. Mayanja, former Assistant Secretary-General, Special Adviser on Gender Issues and Advancement of Women at the United Nations, and Honorary Chairman Mr. Richie Havens are uniting to improve the inhuman conditions of the women in war-ravaged Darfur, Africa. As told to Ms McBroom-Small by a group of women during her UNICEF tour, “We are not looking for hand outs.  We just need a helping hand.” 

We hope that you will be inspired to assist our vision of creating a more compassionate world,
