The Cheka Sana Foundation (CSF) is a UK based Charity that is dedicated to supporting initiatives in Mwanza, Tanzania with a focus on helping and supporting vulnerable children either living on the streets or within destructive families and communities.


Our mission is to reduce the number of children living on the street and build a better relationship between street children, their families, relatives and their community. We believe that all children have a right to a safe, just and joyful childhood and also to dignity and meaningful participation in society. 

Our vision is to implement initiatives, empowering all within communities to uphold children’s rights. This vision is possible through; 

  • Committing ourselves to support and empower children in a way that is just.
  • Deepening children’s participation and advocacy.
  • Influencing society and holding it accountable to a new vision of children’s rights and responsibilities. 

We are a non-profit / non-political organisation which works to ensure that the basic needs and rights of all children are upheld.


Our initiatives

Cheka Sana Girls Centre

Our residential centre for up to 20 girls is the main hub for our reunification activities, providing a safe, secure and supportive environment for the girls to develop and where appropriate, reconnect with their families.

Street Work

CSF street work takes many shapes, but at its core aims to maintain a consistent and cohesive presence through our outreach social workers. We can thus develop a continuity of dialogue with the individuals with a view to getting them off the streets.

Sports & The TSC

Our sports programmes help make a real difference to the lives of those on the street in Mwanza. Both the TSC and our Street Skillz programme offer the children a regular chance to meet up and develop relationships that help get them off the street.
