Since independence in 1963, Tanzania has put in place both national and sectoral policies to promote the welfare, enhance education opportunities, and protect the rights of children. Despite these regulations and policies against child labour, the problem is only increasing in Tanzania. From activities carried out by the government, with support from ILO's International Programme on the Elimination of Child Labour (IPEC) which has been operating on Tanzania since 1995, there is ample evidence that indicates that child labour of a hazardous and exploitative nature was becoming rampant.
