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 34 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 30 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.

100% Pass Rate in Class 10 & Class 12 Board Exams for our students

With usual assesments back post Covid every school faced a big challenge with drop outs due to mental health challenges and academic set backs from the pandemic and school closures. Many children across India pulled out of sitting their exams or dropped out of school.

However our commitment to teach all our students online throughout the pandemic, to provide counselling and to supply senior staff time for preparation, helped to overcome this. Our team worked hard for every Board examinee, they did extra classes till late hours, giving up their own holidays to assure them that we are there for doubt-clearing, concept teaching, revision and practice. This paid off.

All our students appeared for their class 10 and 12 board examinations with confidence and the results are heartening. All 27 students in Class 10 cleared their exams and 28 students in Class 12 passed their exams and are planning to go on to higher education or skills training. 


Future Hope is growing - with the team and children of Khelo Rugby becoming part of the family.  

Khelo Rugby is all about being in the community - playing rugby, which we all love - but also supporting children as they grow up with school and college education, or communication classes.

Working with nearly 2,000 children in 32 communities in Kolkata, a few hundred in the Saraswatipur tea gardens in North Bengal, Haripur in Jharkhand and Bangalore, we are excited to get to know more about them and bring our 35 years experience of creating opportunity to the young lives of the super children of Khelo Rugby. 

There is much to be done, but with our joint experience we hope to brighten futures for many more children.


Since its inception in 1987 Future Hope has touched more than 3,500 young lives and many thousands more families.

We pride ourselves on our alumni who have become self-reliant, hardworking members of society, with steady employment and happy families.

"My dream is to motivate others so they don’t suffer the same ways I had to go through, to be a successful person and support my family".
