The Hope Foundation



Organisation ID: CHY13237

Hope is dedicated to promoting the protection of street and slum children and the most underprivileged communities primarily in Kolkata (formerly Calcutta).  We work in the areas of child protection, healthcare, education, vocational training, income generation and capacity building.

Set up in 1999 by Maureen Forrest.  Maureen does not take a salary.

We are a non denominational charity and are the largest and most recognised non governmental organisation (NGO) in Kolkata.

We fund over 60 projects in partnership with 14 local NGOs.  This localised approach supports ongoing transparency, monitoring and evaluation of our projects. 

We ensure 100% transparency in all that we do and we are proud to be members of Dochas, Comhlamh, The Consortium for Street Children, Credibility Alliance and other regulatory bodies.
