History of WAYETA
The idea of WAYETA (Watoto Yatima na Elimu Tanzania) began with voluntarily excursion into streets of Tanzania’s regions principally in towns and cities-July 2008 by three comrades following the increasing number of street children. There, we met many bright and worldly young people who were playing along the roads, some carrying plate of buns, tray of water on their heads and other begging, while the others being the dropped out from school because of school fees. Frankly, they were there not for the rationale that of the interest, but circumstantial. “….We are here because we have no one to send us to school.” One of the young boys said. “I haven’t any other alternative means for my survival because I have no parents.” The other said in solemnly. The excursion came out wth two views; firstly, in consideration to the article 26 of the Universals Declaration of Human Rights (UNESCO) “Everyone has the right to education.” Then scholarships would be an excellent way to make a positive impact on students, their families and their community. Secondly, there should be a means of mobilizing the present resources to transform the vulnerable situation of the community, since the derivation grounds of the situation are both ignorance and a stern poverty among people/communities. Then building capacity among community, parents would be make a positive relief.
