How To Get Involved
CCR wants to create a culture of action, attention, and accountability to children by first protecting them.
We know that in order for Tanzania to flourish children need to flourish.
We know that children are Tanzania’s greatest natural resource and national asset. In order for children to flourish a number of factors have to be in place.
At CCR we are working on one of the fundamentals, which is safety from harm.
The question for CCR’s advocacy is how can we incentivise Tanzania’s resourced authorities to improve their effectiveness and be at the forefront of protecting children from harm?
We want the protection of children from harm to be elevated to a national priority.
This will require that the Government provide sufficient, quality human and financial resources.
