Our target group is street boys, especially those who live away from their respective families. Normally they would have dropped-out of school or never been to school at all. The Children come from all the Regions and tribes of Tanzania.

The criteria for selecting our target group:

i.We select children living in the streets of Dar es Salaam, with no parents or relatives to take care of them. We therefore do not accept children brought to us by individuals and families, unless we have reason to believe that the future, education and development of the child are at risk.

ii.The age of the children accepted in CIS shall be around 12 to 17 years. Their stay at our center depends on the age. At the end of their prescribed years, boys who are above 18 years old should be prepared to leave the centre as independent young adults.
