Project Mala Charitable Trust was founded in the UK in 1989. The initial funding came from DFID and EEC but now 80% of the funding comes from individual child sponsorship. The head office for the charity is in York and all sponsorships throughout the world are handled from the UK by just two part time people. Contact numbers are in -

Sponsors Comments

I really appreciate all the news you send me about the children I sponsor. Again I would like to pass on my best wishes to you and everyone involved in Project Mala. The work you all do is nothing short of exceptional and I'm proud to play a small part.

Sean Connolly, United Kingdom

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, United Kingdom

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...

Ms. Celia Davies and Mr. Jonathan Waters, England

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

Nice effort on part of Project Mala. I wish many other organizations to come forward to establish schools such as this.

Mr. Maneesh Bakshi, New Delhi

This project will really help the rural children and people to make their own identity in in the society. The way of imparting education is quite appreciable.
