The Taj Mahal Trail

The Hope Foundation (HOPE) is a registered charity helping vulnerable street connected children and slum dwelling communities in Kolkata, India. HOPE was established in 1999, and since then has positively changed the lives of over 2.9 million people, supporting and providing them with the means to lift them out of the abject poverty into which they were born.

HOPE implements over 60 vital humanitarian projects in Kolkata across four main programme areas - Child Protection, Education, Healthcare and Vocational Training. HOPE’s central projects include providing holistic care to extremely vulnerable children across 11 Child Protection Homes and delivering medical and surgical care in the 42 bedded HOPE hospital which caters for the street and slum communities in Kolkata.

2021 marks 22 years of The Hope Foundation. But instead of celebrating this milestone we are facing another year with limited fundraising activities - yet our commitments to the children and communities in which we work remain the same.

As part of our online fundraising campaign, we would like to invite all our friends and supporters to take up the virtual challenge of The Taj Mahal Trail - walk or run the 1,150kms from Kolkata to the world-famous Taj Mahal! You can join up as an individual or, better still, as part of a team, family or school.

Your collective progress will be mapped out on the iDonate page and you can find out about some of the amazing places you’ll see on the trail. To kickstart your journey you will receive a participant pack and school children that take part will receive a fun and informative activity pack.

We look forward to seeing you (virtually) on the Taj Mahal Trail!

Really enjoyed the walk with all of you wonderful Roses :) Wishing Hope the very best with their fundraising campaign. Having witnessed their work first hand, they do trojan work in very difficult circumstances and are a very worthy charity indeed.
