Future Hope is a charitable organisation which provides opportunity through its homes, school, sports and medical programme for some of
the most vulnerable children from the streets and slums of Kolkata, India.

We put society's most vulnerable children at the centre of all we do, and after more than 35 years we understand the problems they face,
and the solutions that dramatically and permanently change their lives for the better

From the streets to safety

For more than 35 years Future Hope has been helping vulnerable children escape the poverty and danger of the streets by providing safe homes where they feel cared for and happy.

Future Hope Annual Newsletter 2024 - Care

The theme of this newsletter is ‘Care’ reflecting where it all started for Future Hope and the ethos that continues to be fundamental to bringing up happy, thoughtful and successful children. The care of one individual for a group of street children has grown into a vibrant organisation with a wonderful team of house parents, teachers and staff caring for over 2,500 children.

Our priority is to get all our children, whether they have a medical condition or are starved, mistreated by a violent parent or have no chance in life, to come to school regularly, meet their aspirations post-school, eat nutritious food and play sports like any other child. Only then can they take true advantage of our excellent all-round education and build their futures.

Even though we have grown, we remain ambitious for each of our children, always aiming to provide them with the best care as well as the greatest opportunities. It has been a great delight to see our Special Educational Needs children flourish through Karate Lessons, other students tackle the subject of Artificial Intelligence in their House Drama and to learn that all the students who sat the CBSE board exams at class XII level passed with flying colours.
