Mango Tree Goa is a UK registered charity. Our primary aim is to help disadvantaged children and young people in Goa, India regardless of their religion, class, caste or gender. The charity is administered entirely voluntarily which means that more of your money is available to assist children in need.

The families of many of the children we help have migrated to Goa from neighbouring states in the hope of benefitting from the wealth that tourism brings to Goa. Unfortunately, their dream rarely materialises and as a result many live in slum or other poor conditions. Children are born into poverty and often they are required to work from a young age to supplement family income.

We believe that children have the right to a healthy, educated childhood, to be safe from abuse, to attend school, to be treated with respect and to be heard. They have the right to act like children and to play. We also believe that education is the main route out of poverty and we therefore focus on education.

Through our five projects we help around 500 children each year. Our Mango House and Chimbel projects both provide registered pre-primary schools in the mornings and tuition classes in the afternoon for school going children. Each supports around 170 children Monday to Friday. In addition Mango House has a social worker, counsellor and nurse and runs a feeding programme to further support all children. Our Colva project provides around 20 children with afternoon tuition and snacks. Our Bags4School and Back2School projects provide around 400 filled school bags and uniforms for all the Mango House and Colva children and around 200 children at a local school for disadvantaged children.
