African Child Day

The International Day of the African Child has been celebrated on June 16 every year since 1991, when it was first initiated by the Organisation of African Unity. It honors those who participated in the Soweto Uprising in 1976 on that day. It also raises awareness of the continuing need for improvement of the education provided to African children.

In Soweto, South Africa, on June 16, 1976, about ten thousand black school children marched in a column more than half a mile long, protesting the poor quality of their education and demanding their right to be taught in their own language. Hundreds of young students were shot. More than a hundred people were killed in the protests of the following two weeks, and more than a thousand were injured.

This year's Africa Child Day is celebrated under the theme 'All Together for Urgent Actions in Favour of Street Children,' focuses on reminding the public on the importance of examining afresh the problem of the street children in the country.

Tanzania, watch a documentary at TBC1, 2100hrs and see the lives of street children in Tanzania. We are part of change and we are the change that is needed in our country.
