Hope House

Girls born in Calcutta’s red-light neighborhoods are at risk for being trapped in the illegal sex-trade industry.

Even for those who are not forced to sell their body the opportunity to make a life outside the dangerous neighborhood is slim. The Hope House is a safe, productive, and fun residence where parents can volunteer to send their young daughters, affording their girls with a bright and healthy future. The House is located one hour away from downtown Calcutta on a beautiful property with mango trees, open fields, and an active pond – close enough that parents still play an active role in their daughter’s life, but safely distanced from the risks of their neighborhood. Construction of the Hope House is underway and we need your support to finish the building and begin giving young girls a chance to change their life, and their family’s, forever.
