Center of HOPE

The Center of HOPE in Guwahati, Assam, was started in December 2007 to provide free education to under-privileged children in the city. Guwahati city has 94 slums which are inhabited by 13 per cent of its population. Many children in these slums and urban ghettos have little access to education and often end up on the streets – begging, picking rags or scavenging for a living.

The Center is supported by ITC Ltd. and has a nursery and kindergarten school and a tuition center for students from standards 1 to 5.
