EKAMA is currently operating in two districts due to high demand in areas which are TEMEKE AND KIGAMBONI The following are the population census figures conducted in 2012
EKAMA Development Foundation has been implementing a project tilted “A Community Based Approach in Preventing Violence Against Children in Community, Schools, and Families, in Kigamboni and Temeke District, Dar es Salaam“ since 2016 . Project aimed at increasing knowledge on violence against children as well as changing attitudes, practices and beliefs of parents, care givers as well as teachers in positive child rearing practices and in particular their role in preventing violence against children in communities.
“…According to feedback from the children, the most dangerous areas or areas that they are likely to be exposed to abuse and exploitation are on the way home from school (28%) followed by places around the school (24%), home (23%) and 17% on the way to school. Only 8% of the children felt that they would be at risk from abuse while in school..”.
In promoting awareness of child and women’s abuse education EKAMA made appropriate and effective recommendations for the formation of women’s groups and clubs in schools

EKAMA is now collaborating with 10 schools in both districts and has decided to set up 1 club per school . Our clubs are used to educate students about violence and how to deal with it effectively . we have succeeded and have received direct results from students
so in the fight against violence against mothers and daughters in homes and on the streets . EKAMA took on this role in defending the rights of women and girls in the home against violence and decided to form women’s groups that would provide education on sexual harassment and their rights., so far we have managed to form 22 women’s groups in both districts (Temeke and Kigamboni)
