Children for Children's Future (CCF) is a registered organization that serves children of Arusha City and Arumeru District under the "Street Children" Project. The situation of street children has been growing in size, whereby at every key location of street children, approximately 10 to 15 children are found. Dr, H. Rwegoshora (2002). The economic crisis of Tanzania has been described as a major cause of poverty which has destroyed family structures. The aim of the street children project has been to empower, protect, and provide basic needs to street children. The organization worked in collaboration with local government, religious leaders, institutions and parents. The interaction and involvement of stakeholders has been to identify root causes of problems, and have them participate fully in the project and decision making process. On research methodology, the researcher used cross-section design, because data could easily capture accurate measurement at a given point in time. A sample was collected from selected areas of Arusha Municipal. Questionnaires were inserted face to face, and a group discussion was employed. The survey findings could be presented to the community, public, and readers who show interest in the precise phrasing of the street children inquiries. The SWOT analysis from CCF organization revealed that significant training was needed e.g. proposal writing and managerial skills in order to capitalize and accomplish the mission and objectives. Moreover, Children for Children Future organization were a donor dependant. Consequently, CCF was facing problems of poor services rendered to the street children at their centers. (Author abstract)
