Charity information

Under The Mango Tree (friends Of Kambe Timboni School)

We work to support a small rural school in a poor rural part of eastern Kenya.
Our support aims to ensure children achieve their universal right to a good education and through this to have better life chances. We believe that education is a core stepping stone to enable this community to break the otherwise relentless cycle of povertry.

Founded 2012

  • Mission statement

    Under the Mango Tree, a UK registered charity established in 2012, works to support Timboni School in order to provide the community with the best local education.

    To support Timboni School to become self-sufficient.

    • Timboni, serving an extremely poor community, gives the universal right to education to some of the most marginalised children, without which they would need to travel a great distance for education or join the 500,000 Kenyan children who still do not attend school.
    • The provision and encouragement of education for all, especially girls, is crucial to help break the cycle of poverty: educated girls are less likely to be married early, suffer in childbirth, lessen the risk of HIV/Aids infection and ultimately give birth to healthy babies and support the education of their own children.

  • Aims

    Under The Mango Tree (friends Of Kambe Timboni School) aims to:

    • To build fit for purpose toilets for older girls. This will help reduce lost days for older girls and help them achieve their full potential.
    • To support the school feeding programme which ensure 300+ children, most of whom have walked long distances, to receive a simple breakfast and a simple lunch
