About us

Who We Are

The Mango Tree Trust-Kenya was established in 2006 in Homa Bay County, a County devastated by the effects of HIV and AIDS, to provide an integrated community-based support to orphans and HIV/AIDS affected and infected families. Homa Bay lies along the shores of Lake Victoria, and is one of the worst hit areas in Kenya with high HIV/AIDS infections. The HIV/AIDS pandemic has left thousands of children orphaned and with very bleak futures. The organization has since evolved to have intervention on smart climate actions to support the households ravaged by the long term effects of HIV and AIDS pandemics. The organization is registered as a charitable trust in Kenya with registration number CF NO.334660.

We are supported by The Mango Tree UK and their donors including Samworth Foundation, Archibald Bathgate Ltd, The Coles Medlock Foundation, The Zephr Trust (capital donation and Major donors), LVCT Health, B1G1, World Youth International.
