Schools Reopen

We are delighted that the West Bengal government announced the opening of schools and that all of our children are now back in. With schools having only been open for a short period of time since the start of the pandemic, the students are excited to get back to face to face learning, coming together to learn, play and spend time with their friends and teachers. 
 

We kept our students in education during the pandemic

During the pandemic online school was not an option for many millions of children from poor backgrounds and their learning opportunities remain ad hoc and mostly inaccessible (Online learning available to only 11% of children in India, ASER 2021). Thanks to our generous supporters in India and across the world we can count the Future Hope children to the lucky ones. Throughout the pandemic they have been able to connect, learn and progress whilst our dedicated team continue to put the children at the centre of all we do.

School provides our students with mental stimulation, relationships with their peers and role models, as well as a continuation of their learning. In a time when their home is their only reference Future Hope provides routine, support and a small sense of escapism for many.

Six million children were already out of school. This number threatens to go up due to economic insecurity in their families due to COVID-19, causing many children to leave studies. (ASER 2021)

Aiming for no dropouts, our team of teachers, outreach and senior staff underpin conscious efforts to interact with any child who is struggling to attend 100% of lessons by listening to the concerns they have and offering support and encouragement.

Future Hope: Coping With Covid - Listen to the podcast by former BBC journalist, Sarah Vermont. 

Episode Description

In Kolkata in India the virus spread rapidly through the city. Many people are out of work and there are many newly homeless families living on the street with nothing to eat. There have been two catastrophic cyclones and widespread flooding in the region. The government is increasingly concerned about what is going to happen to the 'Covid orphans'.

In this final podcast about Future Hope we hear from founders, Tim and Erica Grandage, CEO, Sujata Sen, School Principal, Madhu Ravi, and Senior Girl, Jhili, who sang and composed the music.

We also hear from alumni Rajesh and Mintu, who was the very first Future Hope boy. Don’t miss little Naitik at the very end.

The podcast is the final one in a series of three that share our journey, starting from our humble beginnings to the present day. Click here to find the first two podcasts.
