Ntoma Orphanage established by North Western Diocese in September 1952. The institution aiming to takes care of babies whom lost their mothers at birth although taking care of children whom abandoned by unknown parents.  Most of babies come from Kagera and  Geita Regions of Tanzania. The institution is able to care 30 babies at a time. Babies cared for, aged 0 – 2 years. After 2 years of age the children return to their families to continue with care by the family members.

According to our experiences most of mothers lost their life due to postpartum hemorrhage as a lot of births taking place in their homes. This happen due to customs and low economic status, that not every family can afford transportation of pregnant mother to the hospital far away from home.
