Every Child’s Sleep Gives a Big Dream in India

Mobile Crèches was established in Delhi 1969 by two women – Meera Mahadevan and Devika Singh. They began by running crèches for children at construction sites which enabled parents to work securely in the knowledge that their children were being well cared for. This was followed by a school for older children and adult literacy for the parents and expansion to other cities. The programme now includes medical check-ups, immunisation, nutrition and hygiene. Over the last 50 years, Mobile Creches have touched the lives of almost a million children and trained thousands of crèche workers.

Barnardo’s

We are proud to support the incredible work that Barnardo’s does by donating end of season stock to them so they can raise funds to continue their support of vulnerable young people all over the UK. Powell Craft is committed to keeping all unsold stock out of landfill and ensure that anything we are left with goes to a deserving place. There are over 100 processes that go into making each and every garment from harvesting cotton to sewing on the buttons and we do not want any of those natural resources and human endeavour to be wasted. Money raised from Powell Craft products in Barnardo’s shops helps to fund their invaluable work with children, research and lobbying.
