Hope is a Non for profit Ngo that reaches out to mentally challenged children who are homeless and provides them Special education, Vocational training and Rehabilitation services.
A really great way to help us out is to donate goods to our orphanage (goods in kind). This can be done by collecting together clothes (new or second hand), books, toys, pencils… etc. and then bundle them up in a parcel and send them out to us.
We have a list of some useful and no-so-useful items. Sometimes this can be a little expensive for people so perhaps you could try getting together with a group of friends or colleagues. Over the years we have received plenty of different things in the post, from the ordinary (shoes, watches, clothes) to the extraordinary (a box of honey, coffee plungers, hot water bottles). There is very little that we can’t use.
The orphanage in Chennai has facilities like a free hostel, as well as free education for orphans, handicapped, deaf, and blind children. Our volunteers are working in the nearest places to spread the importance of family for special kids.
