Arusha, Tanzania

PRELIMINARY

The problem of woman, youth and children are in every part of the world. Woman youth and children suffer neglected and exploitation to an extent that was not recognized until recently. Sexual abuse, child labor and house holds domestic work has problems that was hidden in all societies and is only now being brought to light , not least because the testimonies of woman, youth and children are at last being taken seriously by few people who understands. Violence and suicide is also the courses of death among adolescents. These are frequently related.

To alcohol and drug abuse which often stem from alienation, social, exclusion and breakdown of families, as well as the inadequacy of social protection mechanisms. These trends are parts of wider violations and crush young lives.

Adolescence is a critical period in shaping a Child’s FUTURE, for its during these   years that young people develop definitive sense of self, which occurs as they acquire social values, from civic commitments and become increasingly aware of matters of sexuality and fertility. Dropping out of school, behavioral problems such as violence and drug addiction teenage pregnancies.

Teenager’s problems often stem from their increasing  marginalization from the word of adults, their vulnerability. And the adequacy of social, economic and political systems to cater for their needs and aspirations. The participation of adolescent in the society needs to be encouraged and supported and their views and contributions solicited.

The unfortunate tendency to view adolescents in negative light should be directly countered by emphasizing their ability to make positive contribution to society in their homes schools, communities, national and International stages.

As HIV/AIDS spread and more people become infected the number of children affected by the disease increase, never before in human history has such a vast number of orphans been left with little or no adult protection and care. The scope and complexity of development challenges and threat to the rights of children orphaned by AIDS are staggering.
