Current Events at Hope Foundation

Event by PDP Group

The PDP Group, one of our major CSR partners spent a fun–filled day at the Kasba Girls Home as they visited the home to donate new bedding items and chocolates to the children.

Summer Camp

The Hope Foundation works with some of the most disadvantaged children in the world today.
Set up in 1999 to raise funds for one girl’s home, The Hope Foundation is now a registered Irish charity with offices in Ireland, India, the UK, Germany and the USA. In the past decade, The Hope Foundation’s extensive work has been considered critical in ensuring the rights of the underprivileged sections of society, specially the street and slum children of Kolkata (formerly Calcutta), India.

Living on the streets, the children are exposed to acute hunger and severe physical and sexual abuse. Those who survive are left to fend for themselves, with no promise of a safe future. They are forced to work from as young as five years of age to earn money for food and so cannot go to schools. Hope works to free them from lives of pain, abuse, poverty and darkness.
