Mango Tree Goa is a UK registered charity, which was
established in 2012 with the primary aim of helping
disadvantaged children and young people in Goa, India.
The charity is administered voluntarily and has no staff
or office, which means more of your money, is available
to fund our partners and schemes. We are also very
fortunate that our website is developed and maintained
free of charge and that our accounts and independent
examination are also carried out at no cost. As we are
UK based, we are also able to claim Gift Aid on
donations made by UK Tax Payers, which means we get an
additional 20%, on top of relevant donations, at no cost
to the donor, meaning our funds can go much further.
You can read all about our
values and core beliefs
fundamental beliefs guide our work:-
Children have the right
to a healthy educated childhood, to be safe from
abuse, to attend school, to be treated with respect
and to be heard. They have the right to act like
children and to play.
- Education can transform the lives of children
now and in the future. Not only does it give
children the knowledge and skills to improve their
own lives but when they have families of their own
their children will have a better chance of
surviving and thriving.
We are firmly committed to education and to
interventions such as good nutrition, healthcare and
incentives for parents, which will make it more likely
that children can access and succeed at mainstream
school. We support children regardless of religion,
caste, creed or gender and expect those we work with to
do the same.
Each year we support around 275 disadvantaged
children through five projects which you can read more
about here. Our main
partner is The Mango Tree Trust at Mango House near
Mapusa, Goa but we will also work with other
organisations to deliver specific projects which align
with our objectives.
We have set out answers to what we expect to be the
most frequently asked questions about the Charity and
its work here.
