Here is where everything began in the end of 1997 with a Christmas Party for Street Children. A small group of people continued to meet with street children every Saturday afternoon and later on during the week at open spaces in town. In 2002 the work got registered under the name of SAFINA STREET NETWORK and the first Drop-In Center opened at Shaaban Robert Street.
Our Iringa Branch was opened in 2007 after we had started to help a small group of street boys with a Kokoteni Project at the local market. We also have seen many children from Iringa coming to Dar es Salaam.
Are your customers raving about you on social media? Share their great stories to help turn potential customers into loyal ones.
In 2004 we opened our first branch in Dodoma in order to assist children, who had returned to their families in nearby villages to Dodoma town. But we also wanted to help and prevent children from running away from home or to Dar es Salaam.
Building a camp and conference site (Project SAF/DOD/01) and also building a kindergarten(Project SAF/DOD/02)
In 2006 we got invited to support a street children project in Singida and ended up staying to continue with outreach to children on the streets. Many of the children came from nearby villages in Singida and came to the streets because of poverty and families unable to educate their many children.
