an international NGO established for Africans who suffer from poverty.
HIMANGO, a Noncommercial corporation supported by Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Republic of Korea, is also an intranational NGO established for Africans who suffer from internal wars and poverty. We have distributed over 30,00 0 mango trees over peoples of South Sudan area so far. For them, a mango tree symbolizes ‘hope’, which produces its fruit for over a hundred years.
HIMANGO, which started by planting and distributing few of this symbolic mango trees, has now become an educational and cultural multi-complex that provides peoples of Tonj opportunities for education and work experience. This ultimately led to their economic independence, and it was the birth of ‘HIMANGO Village’.

During Africa’s dry season, it becomes an important source of food and commerce. Ironically, a fully grown tree is able to support not only itself, but also its owner(grower) and his whole family.
