Mango Tree House
A residential home for up to 50 disadvantaged children like Mary Grace*, many of whom have had a painful or difficult start in life, indeed for some of them Mango is the only family they have known.
Keeping children safe and secure
Working with our local partners in the Philippines, ASCF, the House is run by fully trained social workers, professional local house parents and staff who provide a safe, secure and loving environment for children aged from 5 onwards.
Education and personal life support
At Mango Tree House all of the children are fed, clothed and go to local schools or college and are looked after for all the time that they are in full time education
Children like Mary Grace* are supported in their education and their personal life. In many cases pastoral care is just as important as educational needs.
When possible if circumstances change, the children are reintegrated into their family. Children are encouraged to visit and keep in contact with family members so long as it is safe to do so.
Mary Grace's Story
Mary Grace has been rescued from her old life around the Dump and now has a British sponsor that enables her to live in a safe and secure environment with enough to eat. She loves going to school.
How has Mango Tree House changed lives?
Mango Tree House is a loving home
Children share their rooms with other similarly-aged boys or girls. The older children su[pport the younger ones and often help them with their studies. In this video Neil speaks about the opportunities that Mango has given him.

Coming back to help
Your sponsorship can make this happen
It costs £80 a month to fully sponsor a Mango child through education food and lodging with full pastoral care. That’s less than £3 per day.
We recognise that it is a big commitment for anyone to offer full sponsorship of a child like Mary Grace every month over the years , so you may like to share sponsorship with friends, family or work colleagues. Children of the Dump are also able to combine the support of several sponsors to ensure that children are fully funded.
£80 per month allows your child to receive a full education and to live in the safe and secure residential environment of Mango Tree House
Sign up directly through Paypal or by card (through Virgin Giving) or download the standing order form to pay directly once a month. Please drop us an email so that we can be sure that we have your details and any requests eg maybe you will choose to sponsor a boy or a girl .
For a regular donation by standing order please download our Standing Order Form below
Don’t worry if you are unsure about making a long term commitment to sponsorship. You can stop your sponsorship (or change the amount) at any time by contacting Children of the Dump who will ensure that each child can continue their education.
