Why not nominate us as your school's charity

How can your school help?

The Mango Tree has a number of schools supporting us in different ways, through fundraising and volunteering.

Our recent school trip to The Mango Tree's projects in rural Kenya was unforgettable for all of us. The welcome we received was above anything we had expected. The young people from both Kosele and Uppingham gained so much from meeting each other, spending time playing, talking and finding out about each other lives. This experience has been powerful and so valuable for all concerned and I hope these cultural learning trips between our school and The Mango Tree continue.

Uppingham School has been supporting The Mango Tree for many years. Their money is raised by each of the 15 school houses, and fundraising ideas are as diverse as you can imagine. In 2014 the Friends of Uppingham School raised an amazing £20,606 for The Mango Tree. 

The schools fundraisng model is really simple, and this year a number of different schools helped raise important funds through organising an array of activities including supermarket bag packs, auctions, raffles, musical concerts, lunches for parents, a tennis tournament and a fundraising cookbook. There were also sponsored climbing challenges, runs in rural Rutland, a sponsored 100 mile cycle event. A school theatre performance. Even a refreshing ‘Mango’ branded beer, and beautifully designed  ‘Mango Tea Towels’ which were a great success. As were the many cake sales and second hand uniform shops. 

Thank you to all our schools for the many wonderful activities which have been run on our behalf - we appreciate everyone's efforts. If any schools are interested in fundraising for us or would simply like one of The Mango Tree's UK team to attend an event then please get in touch - our phone number is at the bottom of this page.
