Children’s Hope India believes that every child should be able to get an education, a central guiding principle of our work. The form that this education takes varies from child to child, from community to community. Where possible, we take the “cradle to career” approach—providing the foundation, at a young age, upon which children can strive toward a brighter future and then helping them along this path.
From non-formal learning opportunities to college scholarships, our work enables children and young adults to grow, learn, and succeed in a quickly changing world.
While India can claim improvements in recent years in terms of enrollment in its schools, girls are still underrepresented, proportionally. A key focus for Children’s Hope India is creating an equal playing field so that girls have the same opportunities to go to school as boys.
But we have seen many success stories. Using a variety of approaches, the projects we support have enabled children in India and in the United States to grow up to become doctors, nurses, engineers, teachers, social workers, accountants, and officers of the Indian Air Force.
