There are an estimated 437,500 children living on the streets in Tanzania, often as a result of violence and abuse suffered at home.

 

Iringa Development of Youth, Disabled and Children Care (IDYDC) was originally founded to give these children shelter and an education.

 

Since then, the organisation has expanded the scope of its impact to tackle issues such as health, environment, and gender violence and equality.

 

IDYDC’s educational sports programme uses football as a vehicle to deliver life skills and HIV education to young people. Coaches deliver key messages promoting resilience among young people and educating them on HIV/AIDS awareness and enabling them to tackle gender stereotypes.
