About Us

Calcutta Hope is a United Kingdom based registered charity that was established in 2000 by two of the current trustees, Philip and Veronica Clein. They visited India on holiday and, like so many others, were shocked and saddened by the poverty, especially as it impacted on children.

Since 2000 Calcutta Hope has supported a children’s day centre, a night shelter at Howrah Station, a half-way home and most recently a long-stay residential facility.

One of Calcutta Hope’s trustees, or our Director, aims to visit the projects we support once a year. These are oppounities to renew relations with our proejct partners but also monitor and evaluate progress.

The cost of all these trips is met by the charity’s trustees themselves. 

If you would like to know more about our activities please read the charity’s trustees’ reports and accounts which are available below. If you have any questions about these or the projects we have supported please go to the website’s contact page. We would be pleased to hear from you!
