CSOs call for increased support on the Most Vulnerable children

Civil society organisations have called upon the government to cooperate with them in their efforts to support orphans and most vulnerable children in order to reduce the growing number of street children.


The plea was made by the project coordinator of Huruma Aids Concern and Care (Hacoca), Mr Johnson William, during training on how to empower vulnerable groups in society held in Morogoro, in mid February. Hacoca is a civil society organisation engaged in supporting People Living with HIV/AIDS and vulnerable children.


“I would like to call upon the government and other institutions to cooperate with CSOs in making sure that these vulnerable children are getting the necessary support for their future,” he said.
Mr William said the training workshop, funded by the Foundation for Civil Society Organisations (FCS) aimed at building capacity for civil society stakeholders to facilitate their efforts to reach the entire community.


He said it’s high time the government considered taking care of vulnerable children including orphans especially those living in rural areas. On his part, workshop facilitator, Mr Hamis Kiloya said civil society organisations lacked sufficient cooperation from the government in executing their duties, urging the government to maximize their support to the organisations.

“It is obvious that in many areas the government has been slow to support CSOs, we all understand that there are various challenges including shortage of funds, but we still believe that the government can assist CSOs in this matter,” said Mr Kiloya.
