Gift of HOPE Week

11th to 18th October 2023

The annual Gift Of HOPE Week takes place every October to raise funds for HOPE’s live saving projects in Kolkata.

HOPE is calling on our incredible supporters to get actively involved in this year’s Gift of HOPE Week to help raise vital funds for, and awareness of, HOPE’s work with the most vulnerable street-connected children and slum-dwelling communities in Kolkata, India.

Fundraise for HOPE

Click the "View Campaign" button below to join the Gift of HOPE Week campaign and set up your own fundraising page! You can then invite your friends and colleagues to support your fundraising activity by sharing your personal fundraising page! [p2p_campaign_highlight id="1" accent_color="#fb6a19"] Every dollar you raise will have a direct, positive and lasting impact on the lives of impoverished children and families.

Challenge yourself to organise a fundraiser in solidarity with street children and slum communities in Kolkata. HOPE will be more than happy to help you develop, plan and support your fundraising challenge.  

  • Do a sponsored 24-hr fast.
  • Do a sponsored run, walk, jump, climb or cycle.
  • Give up your night time comfort i.e. sleep anywhere, but your own bed for one night e.g. on the sofa, in the bath, under the stairs or under the stars!
  • Host an Indian inspired tea party or coffee morning.

Every dollar counts

What your funds will do in Kolkata

$1 will provide healthy snacks for 5 children in a HOPE crèche or education centre for 1 day
$25 will feed a slum-dwelling family of 5 for 2 weeks
$70 will pay for school shoes, a school uniform and winter cardigan
