Why are we called Cobra and Mongoose?
Both creatures are native to the countries where the charity first started operating. We took inspiration from Rudyard Kipling’s children story of The Cobra and the Mongoose. While the tale is one of animosity between both creatures, Cobra and Mongoose charity is focused on breaking down barriers and building relationships, no matter what tribe, religion or ethnicity.
How do we select our projects?
Most of our projects are selected through spending time on the ground in developing countries where we have been fortunate to meet local people who are making a difference in their communities. We work with them to understand community needs and establish how best we can support them.
