Over 7 million children live in slum communities in India and 32 million children have never been to school. Acts of Hope raises funds to help change this, providing children with a quality education and a route out of poverty. The funds we raise support the provision of quality education at a school in Bengaluru in India.

The Acts of Hope Charity School in Kasavanahalli has been working in the slum villages of Bengaluru since 1999 when visitors from the UK saw the plight of the children of migrant labourers who were attracted to Bengaluru. They decided to act and bought a small plot of land where they first built a nursery school, recognising that education could provide the children and their families with a route out of poverty.

Since then, the nursery school has expanded into a well-respected primary and secondary school. There are a team of qualified local teachers who look after 422 children, six days a week teaching English, mathematics, science and technology.


Acts of Hope was established in the UK to fundraise to support this education project. Donations help to pay for teachers, books, transport, uniforms, shoes and socks, and midday meals. The charity has a mission to improve the school facilities and increase the opportunities for the children.
