Mango Tree School was built next to a large mango tree on the property. As founder and chair of the board, Jeremiah Rukukuye, shared about the founding of the school, "The shade of the mango tree provides a refreshing and cool breeze to whoever sits underneath it. The tree still produces fruit each year." The school follows in those footsteps and provides education and refreshing to its students.
