Acts of Hope currently educates approximately 440 children from amongst the poorest families in Bangalore. Here are a few of their stories.
Sherfun joined the ACTS OF HOPE primary school in the year 2000. AoH has been helping with her education ever since. Over the years she has excelled in her studies and has succeeded against the odds. On Aug 12th 2013 she achieved her dream and started a degree course at East Point College of Engineering and Technology. She has since entered an internship with Bosch, India.
Acts of Hope gave Monish a place at the school when no other school would take him because of his short arms. He has one younger brother, called Omkar Vamshi, who is in 8th Standard. His father is dead and his Mother, Manjula, is working in a Garments factory earning Rs.6500 (£60) per month. They are living in a rented house which they share with the Grandparents. Monish says, “I have no father, but I have a hope to reach my goal (Computer Engineer) because I am in the hands of Acts of Hope. I am now at PUC studying engineering and hope to go to University later this year”.
