'A world where it never hurts to be a child'
  • Hope Kolkata Foundation (HKF) was established in 1999 with a commitment to provide sustainable development to children living on the streets or in difficult circumstances. They act as a facilitator partnering with various organizations and a key focus on four areas.
  • Programs: i) Protection: HKF runs several protection homes for abandoned children, orphans or at risk children living on the streets of Kolkata licensed under the Govt. of India with all basic facilities. They also have a 'Child Watch' project acting as a safety net for slum kids though rescue, rehabilitation and restoration. ii) Education: With an aim to enrol all beneficiaries (vulnerable children) of HKF into mainstream education the NGO provides supplementary services like creches, coaching centers, etc. iii) Health: For increased immunization and better health care facilities, HKF runs a hospital for the needy and several medical camps in the slums free of cost. iv) Life Skills: HKF sets up classes for the youth from marginalized communities to ensure employability and financial independence for everyone equally.
  • Outcome: 11 shelter homes with a total of 388 beneficiaries; 960+ children benefiting through HKF's education program; a total of 800 classes held in a year collectively helping 140 students to pursue a higher education or get placed into a company.
