India Direct’s School Links
The involvement of Poynton High School has made an enormous contribution to the success of India Direct in caring for the children of Bethel and Joy Homes. You can read more about the history of the link between India Direct and PHS in the “About Us” section.
Our partnership has benefitted the students at PHS as much as the children we support in India, teaching them about the world they live in and the importance of helping those less fortunate than themselves. The students who participate in our fundraising projects have developed their patience, wisdom and imagination, developed lasting friendships and had a lot of fun along the way. If you would like your friends or students to enjoy these benefits, why not get your school involved in some fundraising for India Direct?
Since 2004 the staff and students at PHS have raised almost £25,000 for India Direct, in addition to the funds to enable them to travel to Tamil Nadu. Many have gone on to sponsor children at both Bethel and Joy. You can imagine the wealth of fundraising ideas they have come up with; here are just a few you might try. You can donate the proceeds to us via the “support us” button!
