The Gift Of HOPE Week takes place every October. HOPE is asking on our incredible supporters to get actively involved to raise vital funds and awareness of HOPE’s work helping the most vulnerable street-connected children and marginalised communities in Kolkata, India.
“As a HOPE Ambassador, I have witnessed first-hand the extremely difficult lives that street connected children and slum communities endure in Kolkata, India. I encourage you, HOPE’s wonderful supporters, to get involved in this year’s Gift Of HOPE Week.
Together, as HOPE’s compassionate community, we can help to make a lasting and positive change in the lives of some of the most vulnerable children and communities in the world”.
Shelley King – HOPE Ambassador
