Centre of HOPE - Guwahati

Capital of the eastern city of West Bengal, the port city of Kolkata (previously known as Calcutta) is very vibrant and culturally rich. The famous author, Dominique Lapierre described the Kolkata famously as the “City of Joy”. Although, the city boasts in its rich heritage, yet the city is full of poor people. Slums mushroom at an alarming rate. Some analysts put the figure of the number of slum-dwellers in Kolkata at four million. These people live in appalling conditions in the city with no basic sanitation, healthcare and education. Their children are mostly rag-pickers or work as child labourers in nearby houses and factories.

Although, Kolkata is jumping into the bandwagon of the Indian growth story, there is still rampant poverty in the city. HOPE worldwide started its work in Kolkata, by setting up the PACE Universal school for girls in Piyali. The overtly clear mission HOPE worldwide was to secure a better future for each and every girl in Piyali near Kolkata through the school and vocational training centre. As in other parts of rural India, women in Piyali have very little access to primary education and job opportunities. Devoid of any school education while growing up, the women have no other choice but to get married and give birth at a very tender age. The school provided these girls with the access to quality education and a much better and different life. In the beginning of 2007, this school was donated to the Rotary Club of Kolkata Metropolitan for further work. The school has been a dream come true for the children of Piyali, Kolkata.

In Ranchi, the capital city of Jharkhand, HOPE worldwide runs an informal slum school for the children residing in the slums of Harmu. The school is a great place for the children to come, learn, educate themselves and live a good life.
