To realize our Mission “To empower communities to protect children to  enjoy their right to education”, CHESO empowers child protection duty bearers to protect children who are separated from one or both parents due to parent(s) imprisonment, death, divorce, abandonment, born out of wedlock, bad customary believes and early marriage. Reports show that many of these children develop mental disability, live in streets, have been infected and affected by HIV, live in child headed households, perform poorly and potentially drop from schools.“Disability” is defined under the National (Tanzania) Policy on disability, 2004 to be “the loss or limitation of opportunities to take part in the normal life of the community on an equal level with others due to physical, mental or social factors”.

The National (Tanzania) Policy on disability highlights with concerns prevailing to date, that diseases and “various social and economic hardships have caused mental health problems to a sizable number of people (children). Apparently, the life situation of the sufferers is dangerous to themselves and those around them. Besides, no agency seems to be responsible for their identification, treatment and care.

We conduct child protection case management for these children to save their lives and alleviate their suffering on protection, health and education needs deprived by the above manmade, disaster or combination of both factors. Our child protection case management for these children includes  tracing and unification of these children to either their parents,  family members or alternative caregivers,  provision of psychosocial support, legal aid, referrals, cash transfer and education sponsorship for those living in poor households and are at risk for non-enrollment or dropping from schools for lack of education needs. We economically empower the children’s poor: parents, family members or alternative caregivers- to cover education, health  and  protection needs of these children.


We strive to prevent and respond to neglect, abuse, exploitation and violence against these children to ensure respect for child protection, health and education provisions, goals and targets set under the Tanzania Law of the Child Act, 2009, the National Policy on disability, 2004 the National Plan of Action to End Violence against Women and Children in Tanzania, 2017/18-2021/22 and the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) and targets on inclusive education, health and protection for all children  by 2030 guided by the SDG Agenda of “'Leave no one behind'”.
