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 your quick reply. I am very pleased to hear about how the children have done since leaving your school and I hope they are benefitting from what you have done for them. I know that the need is great. I know it is very difficult for the children and that it is a huge sacrifice for their parents to try to educate the children. It is only through your efforts and our support that we can hope to go forwards. Thank you for all you do.

I have just been viewing Vinay's report. I am so impressed with Vinay's progress in all parts of the curriculum. He obviously is making the most of this amazing opportunity that you have given to him. I am very proud to be able to play a small part in making a difference in Vinay's life. Kindest Regards.

Your annual report and the accounts thereof made very satisfactory reading. I am glad to have been associated with PM from the start, and it makes me very happy to see how very well the Charity is being managed and the children are therefore benefiting from this. My congratulation to you and your colleagues who have made this happen.
