Upendo Daima - Project for Street Children Tanzania


Our eleventh team member introduces himself

September 2017,

My name is Lweganwa Kamoli Ng'oko, born in 1961 in Ukerewe, Mwanza. I am married and I have eight children. I finished primary education.


Since 2012 I work with Upendo Daima and assist in the street work sessions. Also, I am the football coach of the boys and I arrange the daily sailing like a housefather does. Here in Mwanza we call that function: Patron.

It is very important in the street children's life that there is an organization like ours who teaches the children to overcome their difficulties and to help them to go home again. Upendo Daima does this through the Capacitar method, which is a method of relaxing and healing traumas. Also we do various therapeutic games through our way of working, children are rescued from the street and they get more structure in their lives. Also they can behave like children again and go to school.

I guide the children to playing soccer because by sporting together, the children learn all kinds of skills that they will benefit from in the future.

In addition to my work at Upendo Daima, I also do voluntary work and coach young football players at various clubs in the city.

Upendo Daima and me as well believe that sporting is very important .
