In 2017 we took part in the Christmas Challenge in which The Big Give doubled any donations we received. It was very successful and we raised £25,000 to build a new secondary school which is now fully operational.
This year the Christmas Challenge is supported by a number of well known celebrities (see video here)
and we are participating to provide our senior schools with interactive screens which will be a great asset to our teachers. Although these screens can be seen in most western schools and are becoming common in private schools in Indian cities, we don't know of any currently being used in our area of rural India, so Mala schools would be pioneering this new technology and giving our pupils the same opportunities for learning as their wealthier peers.
Any donations made to Project Mala through the Christmas Challenge
will be doubled by The Big Give. This email is to give you advance information regarding the appeal, which will be launched at midday on Tuesday 1 December for a one week period and will close at midday on Tuesday 8 December.
We will be sending out a reminder when the campaign is open, should you wish to support us.
