Theme: Who Will Care for Me? Children without Parental Care in Tanzania
Speaker: Florencia Kimario, BIGSAS Junior Research Fellow

About the lecture: In  Tanzania,  for  a  long  time,  the  extended  family,  kin  or  community  cared  for the child. However, effects of the HIV and AIDS epidemic, chronic poverty and social disintegration have gradually weakened the traditional childcare structures. Children  without  parental  care  are  left  in  need  of  alternative  means  of  care  and  protection. Florencia Kimario  studies  the  law  and  practice  of  alternative  childcare  in  Tanzania. For more information, click here.
