The Aged Family Uganda (TAFU) is a registered Non Government Organisation (NGO) whose mission is to advocate for and provide support to older persons in Uganda.
The plight of older persons receives little attention in Uganda. TAFU plays an important role in awareness raising and advocacy. It is a founding member of a National Network of Older Persons Organisations (NNOPU) in Uganda to provide a more powerful voice for older persons.
TAFU operates a hospital home care service and has managed income generating projects to support older women, HIV and AIDS projects to support orphaned grandchildren and an adult literacy project for older persons. TAFU also has a Befriending Progamme that links volunteers to isolated older persons.
