Donate & Help

We used to describe ourselves as a small charity! As donors and supporters have become more generous, so we have been able to develop our operations in Tanzania.  News of the good work has also spread and we now have independent sister charities in UK, USA, Canada, Scotland and New Zealand. We look to Hong Kong, the EU countries and Switzerland for further funding.

Since 2003 we have raised over £2,000,000. That is impressive enough but £500,000 of that figure related to 2013 alone. In fact we had planned to do other great things – value some £150,000 – but were unable to, due to lack of funds. In 2015 we think we will need nearer to £1 million to complete all we wish to do. This is not a small charity any more…..and we need your help.


Whether you are an individual or an organisation, we would like you to contact us. Any help you can offer will be welcome. Regular income helps us plan the sponsorship of our orphan families. Alternatively you may prefer to make a single donation. Below we indicate examples of what your donation can achieve.

GiftAidItAnd do not forget that with Gift Aid your donation can be so much greater!

Donate by regular Standard Order

Support a family unit or an orphan by monthly donation. Just £4 pm will feed and clothe one orphan,  £16 pm will support a family of four.

Donate according to where you live:           UK                 Channel Islands

Make a single donation

£10 sends an orphan to Primary School. Education is free but this small sum will buy the necessary school uniform, work books/pencils, and a mosquito net.
£80 funds a bike for a student or one of our Parish-workers
£100 buys a breeding dairy-goat for a widow and a special goat-hut
£400 gets a new house for a family of orphans
£2,500 digs a shallow well

Create a donation page for an event

You can help us by creating a donation page for an organised event, personal challenge or donation for a loved one . The Virgin Money Giving website makes this easy to do. 




Donate to, or partner us in, one of our Tanzanian Projects

If you, or a company or trust, wish to underwrite the costs of a specific initiative, please contact us at info@tumainifund.org.uk to discuss how you can help. Our corporate sponsors find great satisfaction in being involved with our operations and receiving feedback as to how their generosity has made a real difference.


Specifically, we are seeking a corporate partner to team up with us on our “Containers to Tanzania” operation whereby we send out via Dar-es-Salaam regular container-loads of donated goods.12b

Also, we seek a corporate partner to provide or sponsor vehicles, usually Toyota Land Cruisers, without which we cannot service our offices and the remote parishes and villages.
