The Ujamaa Foundation was established in March 2010. It is an Australian Registered Charity (ABN 21 188 212 448) and functions as the fundraising and governance body for the work done on the ground in Tanzania. Primarily supporting Ujamaa Children's Home, the Australian Trustees are responsible for overseeing the operations of the organisation in Tanzania and the distribution of funds. They work in conjunction with the Tanzanian Trust to maintain the high quality of care and ensure that all protocols are adhered to. The Ujamaa Foundation is the key fundraising entity for Ujamaa Children's Home to support the growth and development of the organisation. We also support a selection of other community and education programs in Tanzania.
The Ujamaa Foundation has DGR (Deductible Gift Recipient) status, so all donations from Australian Residents of $2 or more are fully tax deductible. The Ujamaa Foundation is responsible for the sponsorship program at Ujamaa Children's Home, as well as fund raising for the general running of the home, education and other community projects.
We don't want to waste your money on high administrative costs, so we donate our time and expertise so we can guarantee that over 90% of funds donated go directly to support our projects in Tanzania.
Ujamaa Children's Trust (UK)
The Ujamaa Children's Trust was established by Founder and Trustee, Imy Fisher, to raise funds to provide relief from poverty, destitution, misfortune and helplessness. They also strive for the advancement of education for vulnerable children, orphans and their families. In particular the Ujamaa Children's Trust assists with providing vital funds to Ujamaa Children's Home and supports the ongoing development of the organisation.
Since 2010 we have received incredible donations from The Ujamaa Children's Trust UK. Their supporters have run marathons, half-marathons, hosted pub crawls, bake sales and wine nights, climbed Mt Kilimanjaro and much more to help raise money for our home. We love seeing people getting out into their community to help our cause and spread the word about what we do!
