Dogodogo boys visit David Blunkett and UK

In March 2009, David Blunkett MP collaborated with Lord Amir Bhatia, British Airways and Best Western Hotels to arrange a 5-day visit to the UK for two of the Dogodogo boys, Aloys, 18, and Dickson, 19.

"We hope that the visit will enrich the global citizenship curriculum in UK schools by encouraging discussion amongst students of both nationalities of important issues such as poverty and children’s rights. It will raise awareness of the problems faced by street children in Tanzania, and promote closer links between schools and youth centres in the two countries.” David Blunkett MP (Photo by Ben Hamilton)
