Our Partners & Projects

We believe that children have the right to a healthy, educated childhood. We also believe that education is the main route out of poverty. Our projects therefore focus on education and helping children access and remain in mainstream school. Whilst there are no boundaries to ability many children have to overcome enormous obstacles to succeed at school and we recognise that nutrition and good health all help their chances of success and we target our funding at these areas too.

Each year we support around 450  disadvantaged children daily through six projects and are planning to fund the building and running of the new Mango Tree House too. Each of our projects is summarised below but you can read in more detail about each project by clicking on the relevant photograph.

Mango House
Our Mango House project is located at Mapusa in North Goa. The project supports around 200 children each day mainly through its pre-primary school, afternoon tuition and feeding programmes. Click here to read all about Mango House and the many ways it supports children.
Every year Mango Tree provides very many children with a new school bag filled with stationery and toiletries. A complete bag costs around £10 yet it can make all the difference. To read why we do this and about the project in more detail click here.
In addition to school bags we also provide around 370 children in formal school with at least one set of uniform each year. We also provide footwear and rainwear for the Mango House and Colva children. at the beginning of each school year. Without a uniform which costs less than £6 a child can’t enter school. Read more about the project here.
We fund a small project for around 20 children in Colva, South Goa. The parents are largely beach sellers and without Mango Tree’s support its likely many of the children would work on the beaches. We fund afternoon tuition classes and a snack each day and also provide school bags and uniforms under our Bags4School and Back2School projects. Read more about the project here
The Chimbel project came to fruition at the start of the academic year in 2013. The project is based at Chimbel, near to Panjim, a very large slum community. The project comprises a pre-primary school and afternoon tuition classes. Through the project we support around 190 children each day. Read more about the project here.
The Learning Tree
The Learning Tree project came to life in 2016. It is located at Ganesh Puri close to  Mapusa. At present it operates on a small scale supporting around 30 children daily. We look forward to the project expanding to include a pre-primary school in 2018.
The Mango Tree House
We are currently raising funds for this project and we will shortly start building The Mango Tree House – a purpose built pre-primary school and afternoon tuition centre which will eventually support around 200 Children. You can read all about our plans for the House and our Brick By Brick Appeal through which we hope to raise the funds here.
