What we do

TCRF brings together Civil Society organizations and private sector that are working with and for children in Tanzania to drive a common agenda for the well being and welfare of Tanzania children. Through this collaboration CSOs are able to identify critical policy issues that necessitates engaging with policymakers within the government through advocacy in order to address bottlenecks to children rights through various policy interventions.

TCRF links Tanzania’s CSOs with the international and regional child rights monitoring frameworks and mechanisms through promoting and supporting members to improve capacity in implementing child rights focused interventions at desired and recognised standards as defined by the national, regional and international instruments.
