Children in Crossfire Tanzania helps children reach their potential through access to quality early
childhood education.

What We Do


We work in targeted regions of the country where the needs are greatest to deliver quality early childhood education at scale.


We work with others regionally and at the national level, to advocate for national policy and investment in Early Childhood Development

School Readiness Programme

Our integrated School Readiness Programme, 'Watoto Wetu Tunu Yetu', is implementing our proven model of quality pre-primary education into schools across Mwanza, Morogoro, Dar es Salaam and Dodoma.

Barriers to ECD Programme

Is it possible for a hungry child sit in a classroom and learn? Our Barriers to Early Childhood Development programme recognises that not all children can easily access quality early years education. We identify the barriers and aim to address them so that all children have the opportunity to thrive.

Mtoto Kwanza (Children First) Programme

Our Mtoto Kwanza (Children First) Programme brings together national and regional government, civil society and the media to build a movement towards ensuring that national policies affecting young children are delivered and invested in.

Why Tanzania?

The early years are the most impactful in the human life.

Children that have positive early childhood experiences retain the opportunity to fulfil their potential.

Investment in Early childhood development and education programmes give the best return in terms of human development.

In Tanzania, enrolment in early childhood education is low and quality is poor – this impacts the learning outcomes for all children.

Decision makers are not aware of the importance of early childhood development as a vehicle for breaking cycles of poverty and moving towards a resilient and productive population.

Early Childhood Development

The early years of a child’s life are critical to their future development. From developing their personalities and connections with friends and family to brain formation and motor skills, the early years of a child’s life are the foundation upon which the rest of their lives will be built.
