Following regular visits to Tanzania monitoring progress, and finding a similar situation in Kenya, a second Mango Tree programme was established near Lake Victoria in Kenya in 2006. While the climate and general geography are different, the similarities for the orphans are all too apparent. The area surrounding Kosele is an area of acute poverty and similarly high levels of HIV. By the end of 2007 there were already over 1000 orphans registered and today there are close to 5000 (2010).
Consolata, the Kenyan Director, and her husband Peter, have had a great deal of previous experience in orphan care in that area of Kenya and have moved The Mango Tree programme forward with great energy and skill in a short time. The central offices were opened at Easter 2010. The possibilities for developing the programme are seemingly endless in this area and one of the key ambitions for the near future is to address the issue of girls education. (see the 2010 Annual Report for details on this) The gender inequalities are very marked in the area.
