Future Hope is a charitable organisation which provides opportunity through its homes, school and medical programme for some of the most vulnerable children from the streets and slums of Kolkata, India. Every night children sleep alone on the streets and around the city’s main stations. Many are ill, most suffer serious forms of exploitation and all are vulnerable. Future Hope works to change the lives of destitute children and help them to become independent, self-supporting members of society.Founded in Kolkata in 1987 by Tim Grandage, Future Hope now has a number of homes for boys and for girls, which provide accommodation for children ranging in age from five to nineteen. The Future Hope School offers education from kindergarten to Class 12 (A level equivalent) both to children from the homes and to children from nearby slums who attend as day scholars. Day scholars make up about half of all the pupils in the 250 strong school. Sport and many other activities broaden their horizons and foster their talents. Once they have completed their schooling, Future Hope helps the young adults to move into higher education, training or paid employment.The close relationship between The Calcutta Golf Socety and Future Hope was first celebrated in 2014, the inaugural year of our biennial Charity Golf Day.
