For the past 22 Years, Watoto Wetu Tanzania has improved the lives of vulnerable children and orphans in need and impacted more than 100 orphanages in Tanzania.
Our work goes in line with the UN Right of a child, and based on the National Plan Of Action To End Violence Against Women And Children In Tanzania 2017/18 – 2021/22 to give every child the chance to reach their full potential.
Watoto Wetu Tanzania is a local, non-profit and non-governmental charitable organization headquartered in Mazizi, Msata Bagamoyo with another office in Dar Es Salaam, Mbezi Luis. It was founded 16th of June, 1998 by Evans Melkion Tegete. The organization was registered to take care of orphans, street children and marginalized children, Trafficked children and youth, domestic workers, bar maids, girls involved in commercial sex, early forced marriages and drug abusers aiming to provide them not only with good education but also trying to meet their emotional, social and material needs.
We believe in collaboration as we know this work is bigger than any one organization. We are part of a network of nonprofit organizations, Tanzania Child Rights Forum leading the movement to protect child rights in Tanzania and other CSOs in the same theme.
