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.

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.

Sean, England

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...

Schools are running satisfactorily. It will be more helpful for eradication of child labour from carpet industry.
