NGO Profile :
Hope Kolkata Foundation was established to provide holistic care and sustainable development for underprivileged children.

HKF has four key intervention areas that they are currently working on. They are as follows:

  • Protection: i) Shelter Care: Seven protection homes, three crisis units and a mother and child care unit have been created for the youth. Hope Kolkata created. ii) Child Watch: Protection for children 24 hours a day with night rounds by the Kolkata police using Hope mobile ambulances. This results in rehabilitation and repatriation of abandoned children living on the streets, being trafficked or victimized. Hope’s crisis centres for boys & girls, mothers & children are available for shelter and counselling of the underprivileged. Hope created Nabaasha, a project for street children which is a joint initiative with the Kolkata police to provide an 8 hour drop in centre. It offers education, healthcare, counselling, and recreational activities.
  • Holistic Education: Hope has crèches as day care centers for children of working mothers. It has also set up a remedial coaching center to provide additional learning skills to children and awarded educational scholarships to 400 children. Besides this HKF Home Visits to sensitize parents towards education, Advocacy and Networking Visits to ensure availing of Govt. schemes and policies in favour of children, Training for Teachers and Social workers, etc.
  • Primary Healthcare: Focus areas are women and new born care, immunization, leprosy, nutrition, balanced diet, sanitation and free medicines. A mobile clinic has been made available to assess and support children’s health and nutrition throughout 30 slums in Kolkata and Howrah. Hope has also created a diagnostic center and hospital for the underprivileged living on the street. The hospital provides a range of services to its patients and has in-patient, out-patient, diagnostic and surgical departments.
