  • Mission statement

    Giving Today's Street and Slum Children a Better Tomorrow.

    Future Hope provides Kolkata’s street children with the stability and security of a loving home environment where they can enjoy a rewarding childhood. The broad education they receive at the Future Hope School enables the children to develop self-confidence, learn mutual respect and equips them to achieve their full potential. In so doing they can break out of the cycle of poverty and become useful, self-supporting members of society.

    Through its homes and school, Future Hope aims to provide Kolkata's street children with the fundamental aspects of normal family life: a sense of belonging in a secure, loving home; to be amongst people they can trust and on whom they can depend; to be healthy and well fed; to enjoy the freedom to laugh and play; to discover their individual talents and explore their creativity; and to receive an education that challenges their minds and gives them an opportunity to reach their full potential. As young adults they then have a foundation on which they can build to become useful, self-supporting members of society and shed the shackles of poverty.
