Triumph Africa is a non-governmental organisation working for and with older people in Africa. Our vision is of Africa in which all older people lead an active, healthy, dignified life with access to healthcare, a range of retirement options and where their rights are protected.

Triumph  Africa was originally founded  by the late Elizabeth Immanuel in 1995   as a registered trust supporting widows and orphans in Zimbabwe.

Triumph Africa's programs have since been established in Sierra Leone and are poised to extend their reach to Rwanda, and Kenya

We are dedicated to reaching more  older people via  our daycentres   and healthworker outreach programs.

Our values

In working towards our vision and aims, we will demonstrate the following values:

Humility - We humbly serve   others and  each other with an openness to listen and  learn.

Integrity & accountability - We will be open, honest and accountable in our relationships with everyone we work with, and with each other.

Collaboration - We respect and value each other, thrive on our diversity, and work with partners to leverage our strength in making a difference for older people

Dream Big -  We aim to reach and positvely impact lives of older people for generations to come. Think scale  and  sustainability.
