In brief

Future Hope is a charitable organisation, which provides opportunity through its homes, school and programmes for some of the most vulnerable children from the streets and slums of Kolkata, India.

Problem to be tackled

In contrast to life on the streets where personal survival is the driving force and each child has to look out for him or herself, playing sport helps the children to learn trust, teamwork, self-discipline, determination and self-confidence. These are all skills that enable the children to adapt and thrive in the Future Hope community and also prepare them for later life.
