Reach One Touch One Ministries (ROTOM) is a non-profit organization supporting older persons and children in their care. It was started in Uganda in 2003 and has grown to become one of the most effective mission organizations supporting older persons in Uganda and Ethiopia.

ROTOM Canada’s mission is to empower older persons and their dependents to attain health and well-being through increasing accessibility of water, food, education, healthcare, shelter, and other necessities.


The need to support older persons and their dependents in Africa is great. The number of people aged 60 and above in Africa is growing. It was estimated at 64.5M in 2015 and is expected to grow at 3.3% from 2015-2050. Therefore, the population of older persons expected to be 103M in 2030 and 205M in 2050.

Unfortunately, this growth in number, is not being matched with growth in support and care. Instead, older persons continue to be the most vulnerable people group on the continent.
