Celebrating 20 years of impact for orphans & disadvantaged families in East Africa.
This year’s report celebrates the amazing hard work of thousands of children and young people, their guardians, village volunteers, and their wider communities in Tanzania, Kenya and Malawi. None of which would have been possible without the wonderful support of our donors.
We are proud to have supported the education of 27,000 orphans, all of whom lost one or both parents to HIV/AIDS. 75% of these young people have now completed secondary school, and of those, 65% have completed some form of further education or training. 12,504 people, are now working in a range of different professions.
Thank you so much to all of you who have donated to this legacy fund for future educational fees, we are very grateful for your support. As you know, we have also been investing in training and capacity building for our partners as part of facilitating a carefully planned handover process, which is building self- reliance and reducing their dependency on overseas funding. As we start the count down to that handover, and closure of the UK office in March 2025, we will be launching our virtual Africa challenge in the spring of 2024, to energise everyone with a final fundraising push to help us complete The Mango Tree Girls’ School and secure the remaining balance for the orphans fees.
