Many families are pushed into unfortunate circumstances where the mother is left take care of the children by working as a housemaid or a daily wage labourer. In many case the mother does her best to see that her children get education and proper nutrition. HFTH seeks out such families and provides them necessary assistance to tide over their immediate concerns. While HFTH assists some families with basic provisions and medical assistance, HFTH assures the education of one child in a family.

Monthly Provisions We had set a target of 100 families for the year 2012 and we are pleased to report that we have reached 105 families. Education We were able to educate 60 children as against 45 children last year. We organized a spoken English class for college students doing their final exams this year to enable them to do well during the campus interviews. Medical Assistance We were able to assist more people this year with spectacles, medicines and Scans. We concentrate on elderly people and young children. General Assistance More families were provided with cots, mattresses, pillows, bedsheets, towels, utensils, cupboards and fans. Periodic visits were made to all the homes to see whether they were in need of any assistance. Distribution of Clothes A clothes collection drive was done and clothes were distributed to our families. Self Employment Training for Women A training programme was launched to teach women to make soap powders, liquid soap and detergent
It began by feeding a homeless man living on the pavement, by giving him provisions on a monthly basis. Next we visited the home of another family who had no proper roof, a damp the floor and children lying on a mat crying with hunger. We helped them with provisions and a cot. With the number of the beneficiary families increasing we approached friends to who were willing to donate. We decided the time had come to do something more concrete. In 2009, Hope For The Hopeless Trust was born.
