Helping Vulnerable Children and Youth to Grow in Mind, Body and Spirit. Tax ID 26-3031882


Mkombozi (meaning “liberator or emancipator” in Swahili), a leading child-focused agency in Kilimanjaro and Arusha regions was founded in 1997 and registered in 2001 in response to the visible needs of children on the streets in Moshi and Arusha, Tanzania. The organization has grown steadily and now employs a dedicated and competent team of 45. Through our programmes, Mkombozi works to stem the tide of Tanzania’s street children through outreach, transitional housing, education, community empowerment, research and advocacy. Mkombozi seeks sustainability by actively involving and encouraging families, communities and government to take responsibility for the protection and wellbeing of vulnerable children to prevent more children from leaving their homes to seek a better life for themselves on urban streets.
