The EAT4HOPE campaign raises funds to support some of the poorest children in India, providing a PATH OUT OF poverty towards a brighter, sustainable future.
We do this by partnering with restaurants where a discretionary donation of £1 is added to the bill for every table that dines
Each £1 raised ensures a healthy start to a life of change through education, vocational training and protection
All administrative fees are covered by our sponsors, so 100% of the money raised goes directly to the programmes we support in India
"India is known worldwide for its incredible food, vibrant culture and spirituality, but it's also a country of contradictions. An economic powerhouse, but also home to the most vulnerable children in the world.
"The Hope Foundation supports children in Calcutta who live, work, eat and play on the streets and railway tracks.
"Eat4HOPE gives you the opportunity to help these children.
“Be the change you want to see in the world” (Gandhi), your small donation makes a big difference."

"The Hope Foundation believes in a world where it should never hurt to be a child”
In Calcutta alone, it’s estimated that over 250,000 children live and work on the streets. Without the support of NGOs and charities, they have few prospects.
HOPE works holistically to bring sustainable, long-lasting change to these children's lives, breaking the cycle of poverty by providing Education, Healthcare, Protection and Vocational training. In addition to their core services, HOPE runs successful anti-trafficking programmes, a de-addiction and rehabilitation programme for children and young adults with solvent abuse issues and a hospital.
HOPE seeks not to replicate government services, especially in the area of education; rather supporting integration at an early age through selected state schools, out-of-class coaching and grass roots support to ensure that change is sustainable. As an organisation, The Hope Foundation currently employs nearly 700 local staff, is open and transparent and implements international best practice in governance.
Wild Frontiers are dedicated to providing extraordinary travel experiences around the world, including to Calcutta and north east India.
"We are firm believers that travelling is all about the experience and it’s in the details – the places you stay, the transport and route that gets you there, and the people you meet along the way – that make the trip; we therefore specialise in drawing on our own extensive local knowledge and array of contacts to give our clients the very best experience possible."
