About the NGO

Hope Foundation is a non-profit organization that makes unremitting efforts for various public welfare undertakings, dedicated to protecting children in the streets and slums of Kolkata, as well as some of the most vulnerable children in India. Promote the development of skills useful to humans. Teamwork requires us to treat everyone with humility and not lose patience. It is a quality that can only be learned through time by working with people who work together. 

This will develop excellent interactive skills that can be fruitful. In all areas of life. 

Hope that the focus of the Foundation is community service, not money; therefore, it helps us cultivate humanity. In later life, we learned not to always work for profit, but to work for goals that are good for us.

Good Things

  • Workshops – This workshop was extremely important and informative as education and awareness raising can mitigate the abuse that is already underway. A sense of conscience has been created in all of us, we need to discuss different types of abuse and torture that affect a child, all the effects of such acts on a child that could take place in future circumstances, a child is the future of our country, must be protected both physically and mentally.
  • They also hold various other seminars on time management, hobbies etc. 
  • Flexible working hours.

Student Review

In general, the internship at the Hope Foundation is great because they have worked tirelessly for these noble causes over the years. Although we have not been lucky enough to do physical work for the children, we have learned to handle different situations. Timely completion of work fosters a sense of responsibility. In addition to various life courses such as prioritization, interactive skills, teamwork, and cultural awareness, the awareness of altruism is also growing, and we have broadened the thinking process. All of these will benefit us in the future. A career that improves our leadership skills.
