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

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.

Susan Dholakia, Kent, England

Thank you for the email. I am happy to sponsor 2 children. I am so impressed on how well you put the money to such good use. Good luck with your fundraising. I am truly touched by all the hard work you put in.

I would be thrilled to sponsor Chandana Devi. I am really grateful for the information that you have sent me, I read all the Newsletters on the website and I am really impressed with the work you do. I am thrilled to support Project Mala.

Ms. Emer Maguire, England

I just wanted to say thank you to the team that produces and send 'Mala News' and student performance reports. We enjoyed reading them and it's fantastic to hear that you're going from strength to strength.

Ms. Shivani Smith, England

A beautiful school with very well kept grounds and excellent opportunities for vocational and practical work. Thank you for welcoming me here.

Visitors Comments

A very interesting visit to a very impressive + worth while project. I have enjoyed meeting so many good people!

Dr. David Hopton, UK

We have been so impressed with our visit. Knew the standard would be high but exceeded our expectations. We have not seen so many happy children for a long time - even though the discipline was excellent. Best wishes and compliments.

Mr. Harold Glasby & Mrs. Jeanette Walden, England.


Mr. Graham Head, ABC Carpets, USA

It is very good to see the progress.

Mr V R Sharma, Obeetee Private Ltd., India.

We will take the news of your excellent work back home.
