Founded by Samson Elisante in October of 2011.
The purpose of the Street Kid Picnic is to change society’s perception of street kids by creating unity amongst the kids and creating connection between the kids and the community. This is achieved by hosting a picnic event that unites the street kids and the community and invites them to share their stories. Since 2011, our picnics have reached out to over 3,000 street children and youth.
The picnics are held at the Arusha city garden and park right off Sokoine Road. These areas are normally visited by locals and visitors alike and are set in open public space that is safe for locals and foreigners to visit.
The picnics are normally held on a Saturday afternoon. The days can vary, depending on availability and resources. Check out our program schedule to find out when the next picnic is!
Food, fun, sun, and LOTS of love. It’s that simple.
