Charity Talk and Tea: Mala India
OPEN TO MEMBERS AND NON-MEMBERS
Mala India supports many different projects to help underprivileged children in India, but one project in particular needs our help: to provide schooling for children who work as slave labourers in brickyards. Their families are illiterate, underpaid, indebted and fearful seasonal workers, and the children are forced to work for free. The continual displacement of their parents deprives these children of any education and the hope for a better future.
Since 2008, Mala India has been financing ‘learning centres’ for these children, and this is where we will focus our fundraising efforts on this year. These ‘centres’ are located next to the brickyards and offer a school programme compressed into 5 months of instruction.
After the presentation, there will be time for a Q&A and of course, plenty of coffee, tea and home-made cakes to enjoy, including special sweet Indian goodies. In addition, there will be a special raffle with beautiful Indian gifts, so make sure to bring along some cash to buy your tickets!
Please register before Sunday 5 March, as places are limited.
