The Mango Tree

The Mango Tree works with disadvantaged children in HIV affected rural communities from Kenya and Tanzania. We believe that education changes everything so we focus our support directly on HIV orphans and disadvantaged children to ensure they are well cared for, go to school, stay in school and gain skills for employment. In schools we ensure the quality of the children’s education through school improvement projects and supporting teaching by running health workshops and a holiday tuition and sports programme. Finally, we work with families and in communities so they can, in turn, care for the most vulnerable and support children to be educated.

Working with families

Working with families

To ensure the children we support are able to stay in school The Mango Tree supports agricultural livelihood projects for families who care for orphans and vulnerable children. Tobias and Judith are guardians to six HIV orphans. They received help to build a fishpond and to grow cash crops such as bananas. Their farm is now self -sufficient – the family has protein-rich food to eat, a year-round income from the sale of fish and crops, and all six children are in school.
