Why Cocomango?

When the community met to discuss the founding of a new organization, all topics were up for discussion: structure, missions, projects, leadership, etc. However, when deciding on a name the whole group unanimously agreed on “Cocomango” in tribute to an enormous coconut-sized mango that had been perilously hanging above everyone’s heads for the duration of the meeting. You may interpret it as a metaphor for prosperity and growth, for the mixing of foreigners and locals, the cooperation of two ends of the community that had been geographically divided…. Or just a good omen for surviving the meeting beneath the enormous hovering fruit. Que viva Cocomango!
