Read how we work with partner organisations
Archdiocese of Arusha is committed to protecting children from harm and combatting harmful cultural practices that put children’s optimum development at risk.
In early 2020 the Diocese approached Citizens 4 Change to explore the possibility of using our bespoke SMS tech platform to popularise their Child Protection Policy. This will mean reaching 500,00 Catholics in Arusha and Manyara regions in Tanzania. We are very excited that this partnership will result in so many Tanzanian’s receiving important child protection messages.
Jovin Riziki says: “The Archdiocese is interested to work with your Citizens 4 Change because you have such exceptional approach in addressing the critical issue of child safeguarding based on science, research, experience and technology and you uphold/appreciate the inert human capacity for change regardless of social status where someone finds him/herself. We believe that using SMS can have great social impact because there is wide use of mobile phones by community members which will increase reach and transmission of same messages to facilitate common understanding by community members.”
