Children United! helps a group of Sisters in India to build and run schools, orphanages, woman's refuges, children's homes and crèches.   All fundraising is by volunteers who pay their own expenses.  There are no wages / overheads here in the U.K. or out in India.

SO WE PROMISE THAT EVERY PENNY GIVEN, GOES TO THE CHILDREN !!!                      (Which other charities can say that!!)

(Don't confuse us with "The Children United Foundation" who are a completely different charity.)

LATEST NEWS!

I'm off to India in October / November and taking Mrs Millers with me! (How exciting is that Delapre and Hunsbury Park Primary Schools?)  More details to follow!

Clarrie Jackson had the most fantastic time in India, helping at The Little Flower Orphanage and Boarding in Munnar.  A few years ago, whilst at school, Clarrie raised some money to help this project. Now she has actually been there! See her blog at: www.mytravelstoindiablog.wordpress.com

June 2017 Newsletter ready to read - click on 'Newsletters' above right

Hello to Pattishall School! Thank you for all your pennies!

Welcome to Boughton Primary School! Click on 'Current Projects' and then 'NEW Batlagundu Boarding' to read about your project! 

Welcome to Delapre School, who are going to collect LOTS of stamps! (and they collected more than anyone else ever has! - Plus a huge box of money!)

Please can you collect STAMPS for us?  Instead of going into the rubbish or paper recycling bin, we get paid for them.  As one little boy at Hunsbury Park School said, “That’s genius Miss!”  All GB or foreign stamps are wanted, but please leave a small border of paper around the stamps, so that the perforations are not damaged. More details, such as how to get the stamps to us f.o.c., can be found on the November 2016 newsletter.

We have a second website, following Julie and Mrs Johnson's trip to India.  www.whatwehadtoeattoday.btck.co.uk

Is this why so many people like to help us?  
Dear Julie,  Thank you SO much for sending those photos. It's so heartening to SEE one's little contribution being put to such good use instead of helping to furnish plush offices in London of a national charity!
Very best wishes, Jenny
