Since October 2017 to present I am pursuing my PhD studies in Law at the University of Bayreuth, Germany. My PhD project focuses on the Law and Practice of Foster Care in Tanzania. From the time I embarked on this project, I have developed a strong interest to equip myself with knowledge and participate in activities related to child care and protection. Though I do not have practical experience in the field of alternative family care, my research project is building in me a strong foundation to pursue my academic career in dealing with children and to stand to speak for the protection and enjoyment of their rights.

Besides that, I am a lawyer by profession holding a Bachelor of Law degree (LLB)- 2013 and Master of Laws (LLM) – 2014 both from the University of Dar es Salaam, Tanzania. I am an Assistant Lecturer of Law at the University of Dar es Salaam School of Law where I was retained as a tutorial assistant since December 2013. However, I am currently on PhD study leave. In December 2015 I was admitted to the bar as an Advocate, Notary Public and Commissioner for Oaths, however due to my teaching responsibilities at the University of Dar es Salaam I have not been involved in active practice of law as an advocate.
