Sponsors Comments

Thank you very much for sending across this link. It was a very informative video video and I feel very proud of being involved in some of the most amazing work Project Mala does for these children. It inspires me to continue contributing towards this cause and although I cannot sponsor another child right now but soon I would do that. The news letters are very good way to keep in touch and the school report is also a very good tool to keep in touch and makes us feel like we are part of a child's education which would probably help him become a person they might not have otherwise. Also this video on project Mala's work and seeing Neetu speak so confidently brought a little smile on my face and made my day. Many thanks again for sharing this

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

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.

The mission of Project Mala is a nice approach for upliftment of poor children of our society and it will add in nations proper development and well being of society. My heartiest congratulations and I wish to prosper this project.

Dr. Vijay S. Tripathy, Medical Officer, Varanasi, India

An admirable step towards primary education in remote villages of a region which is not so developed. I wish this effort continues and replicates itself at many other locations. I wish I too could contribute to such efforts.

Bijoy Kumar Srivastav

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.

Congratulations for the excellent work done, keep it up.

Mr. Vijay Ananthakrishnan, India
