Tanzania Qualitative Study Report
Global Initiative on Out-of-School Children
This qualitative study aims to uncover the reasons behind the prevalence of Out-of-School Children (OOSC) in seven regions (Lindi, Dar es Salaam, Tabora, Geita, Mara, Unguja Urban West and North Pemba) in Tanzania.
The study was guided by the Conceptual and Methodological Framework (CMF) jointly prepared by UNICEF and UIS (2011) which provides for the basis for the five dimensions of exclusion (5DE).
Data was gathered from education officers, village and ward/shehia leaders, parents and/or caregivers, special individuals working in NGOs related to child welfare (informers), and OOSC. Observations were also made and documented to explain better the varying facets of OOSC.
