BACKGROUND OF THE ORGANISATION:
Save the Children has been operational in Tanzania since 1986 providing support to children through developmental and humanitarian relief programmes delivered in support of Government of Tanzania priorities and policies both directly and through local partners.
Current programming focuses on child protection, child rights governance, education, nutrition, HIV/TB and emergency response. In 2012, as part of a global reorganization process, Save the Children combined programmes of SCUK, SCUS, SC Sweden to create a single operation in Tanzania. We currently have an operational presence in Lindi, Shinyanga, Zanzibar, Songwe and Kigoma as well as Dar es Salaam and we also work through partners in other parts of the country. We employ nearly 100 staff and have an annual operating budget of approximately $10 million.
Save the Children Tanzania in partnership with ADP Mbozi and Government of Tanzania are implementing a baseline survey for Tuwekeze Pamoja (TP) Programme. TP Programme was designed to improve children’s learning outcomes by providing a continuum of support for girls and boys from conception to eight years old that ensures their physical, socio-emotional, cognitive development and learning needs are met. The programme aims to research and demonstrate the impact of its core interventions and the impact of additional interventions which focus on improving the broader wellbeing of children, through the reduction of violence in homes, schools and communities. TP seeks to provide cost-effective, evidence-based solutions for young children in Songwe region of Tanzania that could be replicated and implemented at scale.
The baseline will target caregivers and children to collect data and information around early care and childhood (ECCD) practices. The study will be conducted in Mbozi District, Songwe Region between mid-January and end of February 2018, including data collection 6 days/week, including on Saturdays.
