When children arrive at Future Hope from the streets or slums they are malnourished and many are ill. Weakness, scabies, boils, skin diseases, burns, infections, diarrhoea, tuberculosis, typhoid, STDs, leprosy, neurological problems and addiction are all conditions from which children may suffer. Treating these and maintaining good health are important to enable the children to take part in school.
Education is a human right but one that millions of children are still denied. By providing underprivileged children with an education at our school we give them the key to unlock opportunity; a chance to get a decent job, to escape poverty and to support their families & communities.
At Future Hope we continually expose our children to a positive all round education, build up their confidence and determination to take on learning challenges and to view Future Hope as a steppingstone to a brighter, self-reliant future. As they discover new activities and talents we see an increase in their self-esteem, motivation and sense of belonging.
In response to the need for five hundred million skilled workers in India in the next decade, Future Hope has recently opened a 4000 square foot skill centre. The centre is run in partnership with the George Telegraph Training Institute who have been successfully running skills training for over 90 years in India.
