Gift of HOPE Week

Saturday 9th – Sunday 17th October 2021 #GOHOPE

The annual Gift Of HOPE Week takes place every October to raise funds for HOPE’s live saving projects in Kolkata.

HOPE’s programmes have been severely affected by the Covid pandemic and there is a real need to raise funds to ensure vital work can continue. HOPE is calling on our incredible supporters to get actively involved in this year’s Gift Of HOPE Week to help raise vital funds for, and awareness of, HOPE’s work with the most vulnerable street connected children and slum dwelling communities in Kolkata, India.

How You Can Help

Fundraise for HOPE

Choose your fundraising activity, set yourself a target to raise for HOPE and invite your friends and colleagues to support your fundraising activity by sharing the donation link: https://hopefoundationusa.com/gift-of-hope-week-donate/

Every dollar you raise will have a direct, positive and lasting impact on the lives of impoverished children and families.

Fundraising Ideas to get you started:

Challenge yourself to organise a fundraiser in solidarity with street children and slum communities in Kolkata. HOPE will be more than happy to help you develop, plan and support your fundraising challenge.  

  • Do a sponsored 24-hr fast.
  • Do a sponsored run, walk, jump, climb or cycle.
  • Give up your night time comfort i.e. sleep anywhere, but your own bed for one night e.g. on the sofa, in the bath, under the stairs or under the stars!
  • Host an Indian inspired tea party or coffee morning.

Every dollar counts …… What your funds will do in Kolkata

$9 will provide a Covid vaccination

$25 will feed a family of five for two weeks (Covid Food Distribution)

$75 will pay for school uniform and shoes

$100 will pay for one month salary for a specialist teacher
