Building partnerships to bring about better futures

The Mango Tree Orphan Support Programme was founded by long-standing clients, William and Gail Fulton, in 2003 as a humanitarian response to HIV and AIDS in southern Tanzania. In 2006, they opened a second project with the same aims in western Kenya.

The charity supports orphaned children and their families by ensuring that vulnerable orphans remain living in their communities within guardian families. The charity assists these children and their families to become self-reliant through improved access to education, training and sustainable incomes.

FPC was one of the early sponsors of the Mango Tree and have been delighted to see it develop into a strong and sustainable force for good in the region. We continue to support the charity through the Big Give each year and we are delighted that many of our clients are now regular donors too.

This is a real life example of how just a little bit of help can make a huge difference and how from modest beginnings it is possible to create a lasting legacy that will continue to have an impact for generations to come.

Educating a child is a very long and increasingly expensive process. With encouragement from The Mango Tree, so many more young people are continuing into tertiary education. Now we are seeing many graduating, securing good jobs, settling down into family lives of their own and starting to ‘repay’ by supporting more orphans themselves. We are so grateful for the regular support from FPC and from so many donors, without whom these young people would have had no chance of a sustainable future.
