Salt of the Earth

Salt of the Earth was founded in 1988 after Murray Frankland visited India and witnessed the levels of poverty that rural communities endured. He returned to the UK determined to create change in India. Since then, we have raised over £4 million to fund projects in India whilst increasing the awareness of the challenges rural communities face.
