About Malan Breton:
Fashion designer Malan Breton is committed to providing a better life for children in India. He has been able to use fashion to raise money and awareness for Care+Share, an international NGO working to enhance children's lives in India. This past Fashion Week, Malan used his charity as his inspiration and created an Indian inspired fashion line; the after party for the show benefited Care+Share. Most recently, Malan designed a necklace with a portion of the proceeds being donated to Care+Share. He will make his largest commitment to the charity this September when he spends 3 weeks in India building sustainable workrooms, so that local women can learn to sew as a means to clothe and support themselves and their children.
Care+Share is an international organization working in and around India. Their person-to-person sponsorship program benefits over 5000 children living in city's slums and villages. Over the years, Care+Share has rescued over 1000 children from the streets of Vijayawada - 600 of them now live in our Daddy's Home campus, which opened its doors in the year 2000. Another village - Butterfly Hill, which is meant as a home for HIV+ children and AIDS orphans - is currently under construction. And Care+Share also runs a host of other programs serving slum dwellers, sex workers, and those displaced in the wake of natural disasters.
