About TAFU


TAFU is guided by the United Nations principles of independence, participation, self fulfilment, care and dignity for older persons.

TAFU recognises that older persons prefer to remain independent in their own homes, that when they need support, they highly value care from family, relatives and their local community. When traditional forms of support are not available, older persons prefer community based care rather than institutional based care.

TAFU is managed by a Volunteer Board and the day-to-day activities are run by 1 full time paid and 3 part time voluntary staff members, all with gerontology experience. Trained nursing aides and volunteers provide home and hospital based care.

TAFU is based in Nsambya, Kampala. The office is located on the old Ggaba Road opposite St. Joseph’s Girls Secondary School, 3 km from the city centre of Kampala. It currently operates in Kampala, Wakiso, and Luweero Districts of Uganda. TAFU’s main income source is its Hospital Home Care Service. TAFU has also attracted small one off grants locally and from European charities that has enabled it to successfully develop and implement a number of important projects to support older persons. It is proud of its track record.
