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.

Jacob Bate, England

Excellent!! I really enjoyed meeting the children and answering their questions!

...It is pleasure to support your charity. It seems to be, by far, the most well organised and run charity of its kind in India. I can imagine how difficult it is to setup and run a charity well in India, especially while based in England. Your success in doing this indicates to me your exceptional organisational and managerial abilities. I hope that your model will eventually be replicated all over India. ...I went to a primary school that was run by Catholic nuns and to a secondary school run by Jesuit priests. They were the best schools in Bombay at the time, and probably still are, and they too maintained strict discipline. However, unlike the Project Mala Schools, they did not provide meals, health care, etc. which are so eential for the poor children who attend your schools. I really admire what you have accomplished in India...

Mr. Mohan Verma, England

You are doing wonderful work. Continued best wishes for the future.

John Griffiths

It means a lot to see how well. you spend the money you raise. As a sponsor seeing the kids grow up and also how well they are doing at school is an absolute pleasure. Thank you for all the effort you and your colleagues put in. I know that every penny I am able to offer you is towards a wonderful cause.
