Children's Agenda 2013 Year end Review

TEN/MET's partner, UNICEF coalition Children's Agenda met for its Year end Review for 2013, on Jan 28th & 29th, 2014. The final report is now ready and available on the website at this link.

Children's Agenda

TEN/MET has recently joined the Children’s Agenda, a national coalition of organizations that are  campaigning to ensure children’s issues are reflected in the 2010 elections and the commitments of the future government.

The Children’s Agenda is calling on leaders to invest in children because they are Tanzania’s future. Investing in education is central to this agenda.

We are currently calling on parliamentary candidates to show their commitment to children by pledging their support for The Children’s Agenda. By signing up, they agree to:

  1. Invest to save the lives of children and women
  2. Invest in good nutrition
  3. Invest in better hygiene, sanitation and water supply in schools and health facilities
  4. Invest in early childhood development Invest in quality of education for all children
  5. Invest to make schools safe
  6. Invest to protect infants and adolescent girls from HIV
  7. Invest to reduce teenage pregnancy
  8. Invest to protect children from violence, abuse and exploitation
  9. Invest in children with disabilities

We encourage you to support this very exciting initiative by encouraging parliamentary candidates from your district or region to sign up to the Agenda. Candidates who sign up, will have their names published in the national press. We also ask readers to forward details to their own contacts and mailing lists.

Children representing Baraza la Watoto (Children’s Council) will be interviewing President Kikwete about the Children’s Agenda on Monday, June 14. It will be broadcast on June16 to coincide with the official launch, which will take place in Dodoma. More information is available in the document below
