The Hope Foundation For Street Children

Registered Charity Number SC038809

The Hope Foundation (HOPE) has been working to restore the basic human rights of slum and street-connected children in Kolkata since 1999. In that time, our projects have reached and helped over two million people.

HOPE's mission is to promoting the protection of slum and street-connected children in Kolkata, amongst the most underprivileged in India, to promote immediate and lasting change in their lives.

We run 60 on the ground projects in Kolkata, 12 of which are protection homes and work with children and their wider communities to effect positive and sustainable change. It is our goal to break the cycle of poverty through the provision of healthcare, crèches, counselling, life skills, training, drugs rehabilitation, access to education and whatever supports are needed.

Our programme areas are:

#1 Child protection - saving children's lives and rescuing them from exploitation, abuse, starvation and sickness;

#2 Healthcare - providing health services for the most vulnerable in society;

#3 Education - enabling and supporting children to learn and develop in a safe environment, providing a pathway out of poverty;

#4 Vocational training - developing young people's skills and vocational qualifications to enable independent living;

#5 Awareness & capacity building - increasing awareness of difficulties in Kolkata while developing and empowering local organisations to build long-term sustainable solutions;

#6 Emergency response - delivering a 24/7 emergency response unit to vulnerable children and families on Kolkata’s streets.

Please donate to HOPE - help to build futures and change lives. Thank you!
