Child in the Stars
Child in the Stars is the drop-in center in Arusha, the first shelter of hard-core street children aged 13 to 15 years.
The children come here directly from the streets. They have to quit alcohol, bangi (drugs) and glue before they can go to Child in the Sky in Makumira.
They stay for about three months at Child in the Stars, where they learn simple reading and writing but also cooking, gardening, etc. In the evening there is time for relaxation with TV, games and football. At the drop-in center we try to create a homely atmosphere.
Paul is the social worker and together with his wife he does a great job 24 hours a day. We are very happy with what they do for the Watoto Foundation.
