Hekima is a non-profit organization committed to leading the fight against child exploitation, where we safeguard vulnerable children and adolescents' rights within the country. 
Facilitates ending the circle of the  

children who living and working in the streets ,

child sexual abuse, violence, child labour . We are an emerging organization with big dreams for the future and a dedicated team that works towards our goals.

Through ups and downs, as well as fluctuations in our team size, we have persevered and we're still fighting every day for a better world. Our work is our purpose and our driving force. It is the reason we get up every day and do what we do.

Hekima was founded in 2014 and has since moved from Mwanza to Bukoba, Kagera region. It became apparent to us that this region in Northern Tanzania is in dire need of support for vulnerable groups but has widely flown under the radar of authorities. Hence we changed locations back in 2018.

Our Mission is to empower children by advocating child rights through education, training, psychological support, capacity building and policy enforcement.

Our Method

Focused on preventing, rescuing and transforming the lives of children living on the streets (PRT) to reduce exploitation, violence and poverty.
