Center for Street Children

About Msamariakids

The Msamaria Centre of Street Children is a registered Tanzanian NGO which provides support and care to street children, orphans, families, and communities. The centre accommodates 40 children, but Msamaria supports up to 60 children in total, ranging in ages from 6 to 18 years old. Some of the children attending boarding schools whereas others returning back to their families. However, they still require support, because the parents are often too poor to provide them with food and education. The majority of the children were rescued from the streets, where they lived due to various difficult situations.
