Making a Difference – Hope Starts Here for each child
The first step from poverty to freedom in India is having a quality education. In this rapidly developing nation, educated young people have better job opportunities, more information about healthy living and greater quality of life than those who do not go to school. Children in rural areas are especially limited in their access to education. Hope Beyond Today exists to empower these children and their families to live full and healthy lives – and your support makes it possible!
Our child sponsorship program is called Hope Starts Here. You can sign up to sponsor a child, and be the start of hope in their life!
- Access to a quality education
- School books and supplies
