BENGALURU: The Greater Hope International India, a non-profit organisation founded in 2006, focuses on helping the underprivileged children, like orphans and those on the street.

By rescuing orphans and street children, who would have lost their parents to HIV/AIDS or have troubled families, the NGO brings them to their orphanage and provides for all their needs.

 

Ms Anuradha Venkatesh, founder of the Greater Hope International India, told Deccan Chronicle, “In 2006, our vision was to help children who are in need and mainly those who were found begging on roadsides and traffic signals. We found thousands of children and over the last 13 years, we have rescued many such children. Our aim is to help at least 10,000 children before we die. We have started the Hope Children Orphanage, where we want to give these children the best education, good food and shelter. I openly welcome people who want to join us to show these children a good way of life and to turn them into great citizens of the country.”

 

The main aim of Hope International is to improve the lives of underprivileged children and give them good education. At the orphanage, the children are looked after well and with care. The organisation provides shelter and food and makes these children part of their family. It also provides day-care services and skill development programmes for orphaned children and adults so that they can be independent.   

Mr Venkatesh, founder, Greater Hope International India, said, “I grew up in poverty and I thought of helping the poor, especially the children. My wife too joins hands with me in this wonderful journey of helping children. The Trust has immense faith in developing human capital for the prosperity and progress of people. We work towards providing a dignified life for these children, who are deprived, denied, and dispossessed of the basic needs of existence.”

 

In the last 13 years, the NGO has rescued 540 children and made their life better. It plans to empower the poor, powerless, marginalised and needy sections of society so that they can take care of themselves and their dependents, and also contribute to society at large.room, there are high chances of them catching infections. The organisation ensure that the children consume fresh drinking water, bathe regularly, and always have clean clothes to wear, the volunteers said.
