Project Mala, United Kingdom Uk

Project Mala was founded in 1989 as an action programme for the abolition of child labour in the hand knotted carpet industry in India. We provide education for children in the carpet weaving belt. Our programme includes education up to secondary school level, hot midday meal for all children and healthcare facilities. 80% of the funding comes from individual child sponsors.

Sponsors Comments

Thank you for reminding me about the personal sponsor space on the website where I can find the latest updates on the children. I am very happy to sponsor children at Project Mala, you do such wonderful work! I notice that the two current children I am sponsoring are boys. I am happy to continue to support them until they pass through the school. However, may I request that the next children and subsequent children that I sponsor are girls please? It is a personal preference of mine to sponsor female children as I am a female and am half Indian. I hope this doesn't cause an issue in the administration in the future. Thank you

I was so pleased to read the performance reports for my sponsored students at the Guria school. They have done so well and obviously appreciate everything that Project Mala is providing for them. Their results are amazing. Well done to you all for the wonderful work that you do and to those who made the time to enter the reports to your website.

Very many thanks for this wonderful and inspiring newsletter. It gives me great pleasure and happiness to read about the children who are benefitting so much as a result of Mala's excellent work.

The day we spent with you was very special and will remain in our hearts for many years to come. To see so many happy faces eager to learn and benefiting both mentally and physically from the opportunities created by your charity was a delight. We feel very fortunate to have had the opportunity to visit the school, as it was really the only free time we had in India. When Jon started this sponsorship he never expected to have such an opportunity, understanding and seeing how the children benefit makes it all the more special...

Visitors Comments

Working of Project Mala is praise worthy

Mr. Ashtaq Ahmad Khan, Educationist, Carpet Export Promotion Council, New Delhi.

This is a wonderful establishment. It is heart warming to see such happy children who are learning. Please keep up the good work. We thoroughly enjoy meeting you.

Mr. Rakesh Agarwal, Ms. Anchal Agarwal & Ms. Dolly Agarwal, Rug & Home, USA.

Congratulations on your excellent work. May Project Mala go from strength to strength!!

Ms. Mondira Kalra, London School of Economics, England

This project will really help the rural children and people to make their own identity in in the society. The way of imparting education is quite appreciable.

Mr Ashutosh Pandey, BHU, Varanasi, India

An admirable step towards primary education in remote villages of a region which is not so developed. I wish this effort continues and replicates itself at many other locations. I wish I too could contribute to such efforts.
