Childhood Poverty in Tanzania: Deprivations and Disparities in Child Well-Being. - June-30-10
In 1999, to usher in the new century with optimism for growing security and prosperity, the Government of Tanzania set forth its vision for the nation. Vision 2025 began by imagining the kind of society that would be created by children born on that day who, 25 years later, would have grown up, joined the workforce and become parents to a new generation. For the Millennium generation, the Government envisioned a country free of abject poverty, where all Tanzanians enjoyed a high quality livelihood, and where development was people-centred and based on sustainable and shared growth. In adopting the Zanzibar Development Vision 2020, the Revolutionary Government of Zanzibar similarly dedicated itself to eradicate absolute poverty.
