Many of you will know all our projects are in leased buildings and that security of any lease cannot be guaranteed. Knowing this one of our longstanding objectives is to have a permanent base near Mapusa so that we could be sure that Mango Tree would always be able to support disadvantaged children in the area. Although we had purchased a small piece of land in 2015 as each year passed and more children joined it had become increasingly obvious that something significantly bigger was needed and we decided to have a final search before starting to build. With this in mind we embarked on what seemed like an endless and impossible task. It is extremely difficult to find any property with a clear title in Goa, let alone a property of the right size, in the right area and at a price we can afford. BUT - when we had just about run out of hope, having been let down badly in respect of another property, out of the blue this beautiful Portuguese Villa came to light. In fairness the price was more than we could comfortably afford but it was absolutely the best thing we had seen in years of searching. We knew we would never get another chance like this and we had to move heaven and earth to secure it. We are thrilled and delighted to say that this week, in fact one day after our 7th Anniversary, the purchase of this property was completed. Not only is there a house but it sits on a substantial plot of land which means we can extend to build classrooms etc too. Last but not least it has a Mango Tree in the garden!

We will quickly be drawing up plans to extend the house but meanwhile we wanted to share our very happy news – Mango Tree owns its own House and we know that Mango Tree is secure at last.
