About OurCries.Com

OurCries: is a Social Enterprise which is on the process to be registered as a NGO under ministry of children and gender here in Tanzania. It is working to  end students humiliation and harassment done by individuals in different sector.
OurCries have started with public transportation where In Tanzania especially Dar es salaam, students don’t have equal rights to good transport, they are usually harassed, abused by bus (daladala) conductors and if given a chance to the bus they are not allowed to seat! seats are for adults.
Modesta Joseph (The founder)  has designed a system  where students can post all their cries ,harassments and experiences while using public transport. All reported incidences will be forward to SUMATRA (Surface and Marine Transport Regulatory Authority) for further action.
Also the system has started a petition to end all these cries , sign the petition and end student's cries. We are still working on our partnership with different potential bodies like Governmental institutions  i.e. SUMATRA and Tanzania Police Force even private companies in Tanzania.


How did it start: Modesta was one among many students who joined Apps and Girls Coding Club at Kisutu Girls Secondary School in 2014, where the role of Apps and Girls was to teach girls how to CODE with the big mission of breaking the gender gap in ICT, Girls where suppose to learn coding and then to think of a problem which faces there community and then think of a solution as in how can coding knowledge be used to help the community, and that's when Modesta thought of helping students including herself.
