STAWI Foundation – We listen, We Learn, We Partner for Change

As we recognize that the issues involving street children are complex and interlinked, our long-term strategic vision aims to provide quality education to children in need (Street Children), to protect children, and establish programs that help to address the social, economic, and structural issues exacerbating the street child crisis in Tanzania.

As a registered Non-Government Organization in Tanzania. STAWI operates under the registration number ooNGO/R/1433. STAWI Foundation has 55 children. In every place we work, we strive to work with the local communities, local organizations, international organizations, the Government, and friends to take an outcome-driven approach when addressing children’s issues on a regular basis. We use the evidence to further our learning in order to gain a better understanding to continue improving our programs that bring greater results to create solutions for street children at a lower cost every time we carry out our activities.

As STAWI Foundation, our three-year strategic plan helps us achieve our vision in three intermingled, involved areas:

                    1. Meeting the immediate needs of children on the streets in Arusha

                    2. Shifting local perception to a positive understanding

                    3. Holding the government (Tanzania) responsible.

Through our strategy, we aim to amuse, engage and accelerate change. We will do this by being a creative agency for social.

We support them to learn, grow and become who they want to be in the future.
