Tanzanian Street Children

Jan 12, 2012

Sharing the voices of Tanzanian street children

Representatives from Caretakers of the Environment Tanzania attended an expert consultation at the UN in Geneva on the subject of street children, where they had the opportunity to share real life stories of street children in Tanzania. Planning work is now also underway for a National football challenge to take place in Tanzania. As well as football tournaments, there will be side events such as street dance competitions. The tournament will help select a team of street children to represent Tanzania at the Street Child World Cup taking place in Brazil in 2014.

Finally, a small group of children in Tanzania are taking part in a project where children across five continents are filmed talking about the issues that affect them. The film will become part of a short documentary, due to be screened in support of the International Day for Street Children on 12th April 2012.
