From 12th April
Sign up with friends, family, and colleagues, and take on this healthy challenge to raise vital funds and awareness for HOPE’s education projects in Kolkata, India.
The challenge is to accumulate as many steps as possible from 12th of April. Each step taken, and every £1 raised, will help support the continued education of a child in HOPE’s care. Every 10,000 steps taken will represent the 10,000 miles return to Kolkata, India. HOPE invites you to walk (or run) as many steps as possible in the given time frame.
Every journey starts with a single step. Each step taken during Footsteps For HOPE, and every £1 raised, will count towards a step on the vital journey of education for a child in HOPE’s care.

HOPE’s Education Projects
Every child deserves an education and the pandemic has cruelly interrupted education for children. It is now more important than ever for HOPE to have funds to provide the children in our care with access to a continuous and vital education.
HOPE believes education is fundamental to building an independent successful life and a chance to escape poverty. Education gives children an opportunity to find their strengths, to reach their full potential and empowers them to pursue careers and to provide for themselves, as well as for their future families.
HOPE believes that education is critical, not only for the development of the individual child, but for the development of society as a whole, and by giving more children access to education, the benefits will inevitably filter through into the wider community.
