Initiative by Hope Kolkata Foundation

Hope Foundation is a social development organization working to ensure the rights of the underprivileged sections of society since 1999. We are working closely with 14 grass root level organizations in and around Kolkata to ensure the basic rights of education, shelter care, nutrition, counselling, medical assistance, relief service and voluntary service guidance health care and protection of the vulnerable population, especially children and women. Hope Foundation also provides skill development training to women living below poverty line, so that they can start generating income to support their livelihood. We have reached out to more than 18,000 deprived children in West Bengal.

The effects of global disparities are widespread and evident; the needs of the poor are commonly overlooked in light of the most recent humanitarian relief and rebuilding efforts. With poverty comes a host of additional challenges including stigma, discrimination, and social injustice.

Hope Kolkata Foundation is very happy to start a new initiative called FRIENDS OF HOPE.

Mission of this new wing is to actively lend support to our cause by bringing light to people living in darkness. A movement, "of the people, by the people, for the people".
