  • Description


    My name is Emmanuel ,I belong to unknown family, am expected to be 29,30 or 31 years old. Iam a street children according to the information I had been given,it was sad that my parents were the street children in Arusha region in Tanzania. I never know my patents, relative or colleague than my friends who are also street children like me. I had bad time thinking about my parents because since I had actual mind I never ever saw them and it still a question mark to me .

    I was born in Arusha region in Tanzania in homeless area and I was living in the street, my parents were living in dangerous area because they didn't have an accommodation, job or any other helper which can make them manage to provide the basic needs to me and the whole family, so they were continue living in the street sleeping in the city around the corridors and beside the market like other friends. I never knew what happen to them if they are alive or dead because when I had seven years old I found my self alone on the street, I never knew they belong to which tribe, clan or part of Tanzania that's drive my mind crazy, I had allot of miserable life with allot of challenges and suffering without any helper which was not suppose to me like other children who were in a good family.

    I use to see most of the street children like us who are adult use to sleep along any roads which look to be good to them,so this made them to move from one place to another while asking people to offer them some money others engage themselves in worst behavior like robe ring,prostitution and use of drugs drug abuse this is how street children and orphans live until today that's give me a had time to find the correct data about my parents,also I tried to find some information about their relative but I failed.

    This situation is a great burden to my life because everyone knows how parents and the family important though i cant crush the will of God but I miss allot things like parental care and other good things from parents. It is my prayers to fight not only for my self but also to those who are like me,to have family is very important to any human being as parents have their important in daily life such as care,love and every kind of support in daily activities. If I had been in a good family now I were suppose to be a great person with a good qualification and a good position.

    In Tanzania there are more than 129 tribes,all tribes has its traditional and culture and customs and they manage to speak their tribal language national language which is kiswahili and also foreign language like English and other. These tribes manage to have their traditional culture and customs without any interference against one another otherwise those which had bad customs which interfere the human being healthy such as succumsicion etc.

    I don't know am belong to which tribes because I didn't even hard my parents belong to to where,so I don't know any tribal language than national language and English language .

    I am proud to be Tanzanian no matter I don't know any tribal language but to the citizen is most wonderful to me.
