About

I am proud to say, for the past 2 and a half years I have been part of the Poynton High School India project. We have been fundraising for two children's homes since 2005 which were set up following the Tsunami. On 17th July 2017 we set off on a trip (the 4th of its kind) to allow the students who have dedicated so much time and effort fundraising for this cause to meet the young people they have helped and see the effect of their kind sustained efforts.

Sadly, upon arriving in Chennai we were denied entry by immigration and had to return to Manchester. This was very disappointing for our students, but more importantly the children at Bethel and Joy still need our help.

India Direct is a very small charity, set up by a small group of kind people who simply wanted to help following the Boxing Day tsunami. They rely entirely on our donations and fundraising, and without them, these children's homes would simply not be funded.
