It was last year that five of its members climbed Kilimanjaro to help raise funds for other younger orphans in their community. TMTFA has been active in all sorts of ways since then and now has well over 300 members. They have land being cultivated in the Kobuya area and there is now a TMTFA Theatre group and Choir that supports the work in the community including raising awareness of HIV / AIDS at seminars and campaigns across the district in Kenya where Mango Tree is based. 

They support each other too by holding meetings in various locations in Kenya and advertising jobs when they can. Their Facebook account is lively and almost every day there is someone offering advice, a job vacancy or just support so that fellow members do not feel they are isolated and on their own. It is a truly working family - set up by senior orphans who are taking responsibility of giving something back to Mango Tree. All this is their part of Empowering Orphans Through Communities - the slogan of the Mango Tree.

Evans Auko Jasango Nam recently posted the following on Facebook :
"I wish to take this moment to thank the Mango Tree fraternity for the good support they have given me. I would like to thank Consolata (the Director of Mango Tree Kenya) as she has made me what I am today. I wish to thank her today as I have just completed my course in electrical installation! I may lack all the words to thank her, but may God bless her and the family and grant strength to help the coming generation."
Taking some of the most vulnerable young people who have been orphaned and overseeing their development through to self reliant adulthood is a deeply rewarding experience not only for the Mango Tree itself but for the communities that have played their part.
