Abstract

The study investigated Public–Private Partnership in supporting orphans in primary education in Dar es Salaam Region, Tanzania. It identified strategies used by public–private partners in supporting orphan pupils in primary education. It examined how well the public-private partnership work in supporting orphans pupils in primary education and lastly it identified the modality for Public-Private Partnership to develop more effective ways for supporting orphan pupils in primary education. Both qualitative and quantitative research methods were employed to facilitate the study. Data were collected from a sample of 65 respondents. The findings revealed that the financing orphans to meet their needs for primary education was a combined effort from different education stakeholders. However, NGOs were leading in supporting orphan pupils, followed by the government, individuals, and CBOs. It was also revealed that the support offered to orphans pupils was inadequate to reach all the orphans due to the big number of orphans as compared to incomes from Centre Government.It is recommended that, supporting orphan pupils in primary education should be regarded as an investment for the country’s economic health and future political stability rather than consumption because orphans and vulnerable children potentially provides the future human capital. Therefore, the government, NGOs, CBOs, families and individuals should increase support for orphan pupils in primary education.
