WELCOME TO THE TSHIAMISO TRUST WEBSITE
The Tshiamiso Trust has been established to carry out the terms of the settlement agreement reached between six mining companies and claimant attorneys in the historic silicosis and TB class action.
The Trust is responsible for ensuring that all eligible current and former mineworkers across southern Africa with silicosis or work-related TB (or their dependants where the mineworker has passed away) are compensated. These beneficiaries are front and centre in all that the Trust does.
Tshiamiso is a Setswana word meaning 'to make good' or 'to correct'
It is our vision to live up to our name and while the past cannot be undone the Trust will strive to make a difference now and in the future.
