  • Marker details
  • DescriptionI was born on the street by a homeless mother who abandoned me, where I endured not just physical struggle of finding food to eat and a safe space to sleep at night, but also the hopelessness and despair of having neither love or support, without any sense that I mattered to the world.
    My life was saved in the year 2000 at age 14 by two community leaders who built a small center, Children for Children’s Future (CCF), where street children were free to come and go to fulfill their physical and psycho-social needs: food, beds, counseling, and educational activities.
    Arusha childrencenter takes advantage of their home city of Arusha as a hub of international tourism, and seeks to engage tourists in a meaningful two-way exchange. Tourists are welcome to learn the real stories and lifestyles of everyday Tanzanians, through volunteering at the ACC Center as well as taking cultural and natural excursions with the ACC Team. In return, the ACC Center uses tour fees to improve the facilities and increase the resources that they can offer to the community of homeless youth in Arusha, who come to ACC for physical, economic, and psycho-social support.
