Future Hope Nederland

Stichting Future Hope Nederland werft sinds 1993 fondsen voor de dagelijkse onkosten van Future Hope in India.

Future Hope biedt opvang en opleiding aan honderden kwetsbare kinderen die op straat of in de armste sloppenwijken van Kolkata, in India overleven.  Dit zijn kinderen die voortdurend blootgesteld zijn aan alle vormen van geweld, misdaden, ziektes, verslaving en kinderarbeid.

News

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. 

At this exciting time for us all our CEO Sujata has wasted no time in getting out to meet some of the children and welcome the young leaders to Future Hope. At the Khelo Rugby Sunrise Centre in Saraswatipur Sujata met with many as we hosted 150+ children following a rugby tournament. The children are all from families that work in the local tea garden, remote from the main city of Siliguri, where future opportunities are few. With their own small educational support project and partnerships with good companies we are changing that. There is also the small matter of 11 girls from the village having played rugby for India! 

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

Who Are We?

When school reopened after the Durga Puja break, we had brainstorming meeting on day one to remind ourselves Who Are We and we had some interesting thoughts from teachers and staff.

For us the child is at the centre of everything we do; we are about all-round development for the child; their families matter; their mental and physical health is crucial; co-curricular activities and the arts make them creative thinkers; our values of Trust, Care, Commitment, Tolerance and Opportunity guide us at every step and we will respond as conscious citizens to the outside world protecting our environment, from our trees to our earth and the ant to the elephant.

We agreed that our signatures will be as follows:
1. We will continue with our Individual Child Care Plans because every child matters. These plans will track the wholistic development of every child. Academic of course but also help with vocational and skills courses if formal academics is not something that the child can cope with. We will strengthen our resource room for Special Education, we will take the help of partners where we don’t have our own capacity, we will review this periodically and take corrective action.

2. We will be a green school and green organisation. No plastics and wastage of course, but also positive, innovative, affirmative action towards environment and climate change and carbon neutrality. Every teacher and every member of staff will have three action points to work on towards environment education and action. We will live this every day and in every little action or gesture we make.

3. Sports will be at the centre of our education as it is an equaliser for our children and brings values of teamwork, confidence, discipline and joy. We like winning trophies but we like the values of sports more.

We agreed on action points for each of the above. This also aligns us with the UN Sustainable Development Goals. We have a caring team which will make this possible.
