Dear Friends of Hope,

After 47 years of work, the Hope Project is the heart of the neighborhood it serves. Like all communities there is the intertwining of communities, that are attached circles of support which includes people from around the world. Because of this project, lives are changed, hope is reborn, and the dream of a beautiful world of beautiful people becomes a greater reality every day. To address the needs of the nitty gritty slums in and around Delhi, friends realizing the needs of fellow people begin infusing possibility, potential, sensitivity, and efficacy, encouraging residents’ enthusiasm and resourcefulness.

As a world community the Hope Project has been the center for light, healing, and energy for all to connect with.

The Hope Project  ideals of love, harmony, and beauty thrives and has grown from serving one neighborhood to serving many neighborhoods. Together, we have supported an idea in its infancy into several ideals of community, facing growing pains and challenges with steadfast embodiment for accommodation, collaboration, negotiation, patience, and respect, that perfection in anything, is not an option.

With our community support we have healed through the covid crisis honoring the social workers and everyday teachers and staff that face and deal with hundreds of people every day.

We are now working to heal the flooding trauma and displacement of thousands of people. What started as a milk project for mothers and children has grown to a mature organization that is a hub for connecting and networking non-profits throughout Delhi. Becoming a model was not a goal but has become the reality by fostering compassion and good will to others.

In India, another new idea, is creating parks and campsites for all children regardless of their caste or creed, and we are so proud to be on the cutting edge creating the Kids In Nature program, which will be a camp site in Rajasthan, for the Hope project, and later for other disadvantaged children.

There are no words that can be sufficient enough to thank all the donors ,volunteers, lovers, artists, and visionaries that have contributed to the livelihood of the Project.

With gratitude for all we do in service for others, truly giving and receiving are the same.
