Welcome to the website of India Direct. We're a small charity based in Macclesfield, Cheshire. We help those most in need, as identified by our Indian Partners, regardless of race, religion or colour. At India Direct, we have a simple philosophy: from every penny that we raise or receive in donations we spend 100% on those that matter. We don't spend money on staff, marketing or plane fares. We audit our accounts and ensure accountability by making regular trips to India paid for by individual trustees, not from the charity.
