The A Little Giving food programme sees Darlo donate a week’s worth of meals to a child under the care of Mumbai based charity Project Crayons for every purchase from our organic cotton range. Project Crayons run various initiatives across India, helping disadvantaged children from various communities. For those of you who are familiar with our story so far, you will know that we have started out by donating meals to Project Crayon’s home for girls, Udaan Ghar – a wonderful place offering food, education, shelter, and above all love to abandoned girls from the slums of Mumbai. We aim to eventually cover the whole of the annual food bill for the home, which in turn means that Project Crayons can allocate funds to their other projects.
One such project is their School On Wheels. The premise behind this is simple. If children can’t get to the local school then why not take the school to them! Using a school bus turned mobile classroom the initiative aims to deliver holistic education to children who have dropped out of education in order to work to support their families financially, or those who have never been to school at all. The mobile school will nurture every child’s cognitive, emotional and social competencies and mainstream them into formal schools after a year. The school aims to address the implications of large numbers of children from the same community missing out on basic education.
