Yatima Group Trust Fund

How we started

It all started after the death of three relatives (blood sisters &brothers) of the Chairperson, Mama Winifrida Lubanza. The deceased left behind a total of 16 orphans which were in hands of the Mama Winifrida Lubanza. She appealed for assistance from different relief agencies and individuals including the Second Retired President of the Republic of Tanzania Hon. Alhaj Ally Hassan Mwinyi. After all these efforts, she was eventually advised to find other people with the same problem and form an agency which will facilitate channeling of the needed assistance to orphans.
