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.

Thank you for a lovely week. I really enjoyed working with you and meeting the staff and pupils. I was especially impressed by the lovely year 9 class who now know a bit more than they used to about the UK Constitution! Good lick with the sponsorship project and see you soon.

Mrs.McGrouther, United Kingdom

...Thank you for taking time out from your busy Christmas schedule to send me the email. I like receiving your emails that give me more information about the children that I sponsor. I doubt if any other charity in India would have this personal touch - they are more likely to send a letter from a template, if at all...I do look log in, soon after sponsoring each child, and then occasionally there after. This facility for donors is one of the many reasons that makes your charity outstanding...
