Research Design The chosen research type is descriptive and it will use both qualitative and quantitative method (Kothari, C.R: 2004). As quantitative research refers to the systematic empirical investigation of social phenomena via statistical, mathematical or numerical data or computational techniques, where qualitative method Qualitative researchers aim to gather an in-depth understanding of human behavior and the reasons that govern such behavior. The qualitative method investigates the why and how of decision making, not just what, where, when. Hence, smaller but focused samples are more often used than large samples. 13. Population of the study The target area is Karagwe district, Tanzania which has 78 registered NGOs to be involved in this study, 22 wards to be reached, department of social welfare officers and the police officers to be involved in the current study. 14. Sampling Techniques Sampling is the process of selecting a number of individuals for a study in such a way that the individuals represent the larger group from which they were selected (Kothari, C.R: 2004). The current study will use stratified random sampling technique. It will randomly draw 78 respondent from the 78 registered NGOs in Karagwe district and only executive directors of NGO will be selected; get respondent from the 22 Wards of Karagwe district who are most vulnerable children committees leaders, 2 government social welfare officers will be involved in the study and 4 police officers in Karagwe district will be used as representative sample of the study. 15.

Data Collection Methods The researcher will use standardize questionnaires, and surveys methods necessary in carrying out this study. Survey= collecting information , usually from fairly large groups of people, by means of questionnaires but other techniques such as interviews or telephoning may also be used(Kothari, C.R: 2004). While 17. Questionnaire= This is mostly used as when participants have no time to attend interview and participants gets time to state their views privately without worrying without possible reaction of the researcher (Kothari, C.R: 2004) 18. Validation and Reliability of Instruments The two supervisors (internal and external) will be involved to validate the questionnaire. Their corrections and suggestions will be incorporated in the draft for the next stage of validation. The 15 NGOs officials who will not be included as the final respondents will be asked to answer the questionnaires. Their responses will be tested for reliability. 19. Data Analysis Data analysis is the process which starts at data collection and ends at interpretation of processed data. The current researcher will use the document analysis-recording sheets, where in analysis a margin of error of 0.075 will be selected since it is logically difficult to deal with a larger sample size (Mugenda et al., 2003). 20. Cross tabulation will be run on a SPSS (Statistical Package for Social Sciences) to establish correlations between the different variables. The researcher will organize the results around every objective. Data will be presented by use of tables and graphs, giving rise to descriptively detailed interpretation of the phenomenon 21.
