Your opportunity to participate in transforming the lives of children in Calcutta
The Hope Home Calcutta through visionary thinking helps caring individuals, corporate enterprises and organization who take social responsibility and corporate citizenship seriously, find a way to have their charitable wishes stand the test of time through tangible application.
The Hope Home Calcutta is growing and as such has significant long and short-term needs. Being based in such a non-affluent region requires us to rely on the benevolence of our fellow men and women who are blessed with a little abundance. This is where you can help as an individual, family, group or as an organization.
The Hope Home Calcutta relies on the financial support of friends and colleagues like you. The financial support we receive from individuals and organizations is support we can use where the need is greatest, and we can respond immediately to emerging opportunities. Presently, all support is being used for the Child Development Initiative. We also have needs for the Critical Response Initiative and the now developing Community Empowerment Initiative. Donations for our upcoming building project, Let There Be Hope- Phase 2 should be marked clearly and separately.
The Hope Home Calcutta welcomes all contributions whether they are financial, equipment, or volunteer support. Volunteering is available on a one-time or ongoing basis to help meet the challenges and needs of the marginalized children in the city of Calcutta.
