Yvonne put this fantastic charity forward who recieved 15 Printed Mugs from us after they were drawn out the free charity prize draw.
Yvonne told us that Vital for Children were going to use the mugs to help raise awareness of the charity.
The charity told us about themselves:
VITAL for Children is a London-based charity working to eradicate child poverty in Kolkata through education, healthcare and child protective services. Most of our beneficiaries are street/slum children, child labourers, former victims of human trafficking and abuse and children living in red light district areas across Kolkata.
Very uniquely, 100% of all donations received go straight to our projects: we have a separate Foundation which covers our small admin costs and the salary of VITAL's single employee, as VITAL is run only by our Founder (Yvonne Neuman) and Assistant Director on a day-to-day basis.
Since 2007, we have seen numerous first-generation educated children graduate from our projects and transition to tertiary and postgraduate-level study, while one of our projects has ensured that no child has followed their parents' footsteps into second-generation prostitution in a red light district which constitutes an extension of Asia's largest red light district, Sonagachi!
