Mission

Homes of Hope India-US, a 501c3 registered charity, works in orphanages, schools, junior colleges and social empowerment centres throughout India to:rescue, shelter and educate orphaned, marginalized and trafficked girls and educate the poorest of the poor (both girls and boys). We have built 24 Homes of Hope, with 6 more under construction. We work in collaboration with Salesian; Carmelite; Franciscan Clarist; Holy Spirit; Missionary Sisters of Mary Help of Christians; Jesus, Mary, and Joseph; Sacred Heart; and St. Anne sisters to rescue, house and educate 2,000+ girls, the unwanted “street children” of India. Our resilient young women are now nurses, computer programmers, office managers, medical technicians and accountants. We have broken the cycle of poverty.

Programs and results

What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

In India, girls born into poverty are at a complete disadvantage regarding status in the family, access to education, and more often that not access to basic needs (food, shelter, care, safety). In short, many of these young girls are left to fend for themselves in the streets of India where they are at risk of being sold into child domestic or sexual slavery, where they live their lives on the streets begging to barely get by day to day and continue in the cycle of poverty over their lifetime and inevitably their children's lifetimes as well. In addition, many girls are orphaned, some by AIDS; others are simply abandoned.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Our goals are to provide safe and adequate housing as well as educational opportunities to as many of the over 500,000 vulnerable girls on the streets of India as is possible. If we do not do this work, they face abuse, rape, even death. But more than that, our goal is to provide this shelter, care, and education so that these young women have a chance to interrupt the the cycle of poverty and move in the direction of a thriving life. For themselves and their future families. \r\n\r\nUntil all those 500,000 girls are safe, our work is not done.

We reach out to individuals, groups, churches, civic groups, foundations to support and enhance our work in order to create a sustaining and sustainable community. It is important to us that the people and groups supporting us, whether fiscally or in development of programs, know that we are committed to making these goals a reality for our girls. It is through this development of our community that we are able to continue our work year after year as those who support us are kept up to date and connected to our work. \r\n \r\nOur core focus is our building program because without shelter nothing else can be done. We build sustainable buildings, but most importantly we build homes. Our homes in India are built by construction workers from the local communities. They are administered by the Salesian, Franciscan Clarist, or Carmelite sisters. These groups have worked with the poor in India for over 150 years. \r\n Once we can provide the home, we work to provide not just education, but top-notch education through our unique "Thinking Schools Academy" approach. The "Thinking Schools Academy" approach aims to enhance the educational experience of students through teaching skills in critical thinking and solution-based problem solving. As the girls grow, they know they have a home base and a global community of people caring and cheering for them and that knowledge makes a difference.

We are innovative, entrepreneurial and fearless. We have been working in India since 2006. We think strategically, but most important is the passion with which we approach our work. No job is too big, and there is no problem that cannot be addressed. We travel often to India and know our sites and our girls well. We keep in close touch with our donors because they are members of the Homes of Hope family.

Homes of Hope has been working to build orphanages and support schools across India since 2006. When Homes of Hope first started, it was called Home of Hope as we did not imagine that only 14 years later we would be fund raising to build our #16 Home of Hope. \n \nOur accomplishments are not simply measured in our dedication and ability to build orphanages. Our accomplishments lie in our ability to provide as many futures as possible for young girls who otherwise may be forgotten. We know we are saving lives.
