Stop, Listen, Hear the plight of girls born to the streets of India

    1. Petition by

      The Hope Foundation

Because "It should never hurt to be a child" @Hopefoundation Vision

Over the years, HOPE have met with thousands of children whose lives have been disturbed by uncaring adults. Everyone one of us who have enjoyed a safe life know what it is like to go to school, come home, have dinner, do our homework with our parents and go to bed to sleep. The street children of Calcutta don't know this normality... They jump up in the morning amidst the bustle around them- they hide their cardboard beds and they wander through the day hoping they pass unnoticed without abuse. The lay their heads down at night on the cardboard boxes which our shoes have been packed in, the covers which protect them through the night. While we sleep amongst the recessions of the world, please realise that 1 euro/1 pound/1 dollar will change a life- it will feed a child, it will save a life... right now. Please help change a life. http://www.hopefoundation.ie/get-involved/donate/

      Because I have seen the poverty on the streets of Calcutta and the incredible work 'The Hope Foundation' does to help street and slum children.

      This is important to me as I got the chance to visit calcutta with the hope foundation so i got to see first hand the awful conditions they live in. I cannot imagine my life as a girl living in india, I am so priviledged to have been born into western society but if was not so lucky i would want everyone to sign this petition on my behalf
