Street Children in Tanzania

CSC Projects Supporting Street Children in Tanzania

CSC has been partnering with organisations supporting street children in Tanzania since 2017. Extreme poverty and rapid urbanisation has led large populations of children to migrate to the streets of Tanzania’s cities. In Dar es Salam alone, it is estimated that between 3,000-5,000 children live on the streets. Many families send their children to work rather than sending them to school to support the family. Only 19% of births in Tanzania are registered, meaning that the majority of street-connected children lack access to social security and public services, making it even harder to support this hidden population. See below for more information on our project in Tanzania.

The Legal Atlas: Putting Street Children on the Map

Street children are one of the world’s most invisible populations, overlooked by governments, law and policymakers and many others in society. To address this, CSC and our partner Baker McKenzie created the Legal Atlas, to put information about laws affecting street children directly into their -and their advocates’ – hands.
