We’re here to raise awareness about, and funds for, street-connected children and vulnerable communities in Kolkata, India. Our objective is to raise funds to support them, through projects delivered directly by The Hope Kolkata Foundation. We’ve been active in the UK for over ten years and in the last five years alone sent £690,000 to India. We also currently have more than 450 children in Kolkata whose education and general healthcare needs are sponsored by UK donors.
We work closely with, and are supported by The Hope Foundation in Ireland. As the UK arm of the wider HOPE organisation, we share the common vision that “it should never hurt to be a child”. Providing the children in HOPE’s care with protection, healthcare, counselling and education helps them enter into adulthood equipped with the tools and support they need to live healthy and happy lives with better opportunities for their future.
If you are an existing Hope Foundation UK donor or sponsor, we are very grateful for you your support. If you are not and would like to help, please do contact us.
