In the last two decades many things have moved on in India, yet many thousands of children still live on the streets, abused, exploited and maimed. We respond to these problems by taking the most vulnerable children who have no family capable of caring for them into one of our homes, whilst also offering them and children from the very poorest families in the slums an all-round education at Future Hope School. Our aim is to help the children overcome their poor start in life to become independent and caring adults.
Desperate & Alone
Bokul was about six years old when the little hut where he lived with his mother caught fire. Both were severely burnt and his mother died in hospital three days later, leaving behind Bokul. When no one came to the hospital to collect him, he was put out on the streets.
When we found him several months later he was bewildered, scarred and desperately unloved. At Future Hope he settled into a loving home where playing sport helped him to manage his anger, to feel part of a team and to trust.
