Sema is Kiswahili for ‘speak.’ C-Sema provides children with platforms where their voices are heard and voice their concerns to parents, teachers, communities and government.

Why we love them

This is a fresh model that is not only strengthening child services in Tanzania, but also intervening early in families and communities to change the dynamic from ‘children should listen’ to ‘children should also be listened to.’
