General information on Tanzania
“Jamhuri ya Muungano wa Tanzania” (The United Republic of Tanzania) is currently home to four SOS Children’s Villages. The organisation has been active in Tanzania since the former president of Zanzibar, Ali Hassan Mwinyi, approached Hermann Gmeiner in 1984, requesting that an SOS Children’s Village should be built in his country. In 1991, the first children were able to move into their new families.
