Testimonial

Sandip Ghoshal (HOPE volunteer from India)

Sandip is a research and development engineer who completed his post graduate from IIT, Mumbai. Sandip spent 1 month volunteering in HOPE’s projects. “I know Kolkata like the back of my hand.” I always exaggerated till the day I joined Hope. For me Kolkata was “Esplanade, Coffee House, Gariahat, Princep Ghat, Maddox Square bla bla bla with a long list.
But my list never contains the slum behind the Dhakuria AMRI (though I visited the hospital 1000 times before), a shelter for more than 1700 families, the list never has “Ashirbad Boys Home” no less than “a real home” for more than 50 homeless children and many other places full of people from my city I never did care about.Yes, HOPE gives me an insight of my city and the people living there, who were far away from my previous world of fun, enjoyment and carelessness.
Coming to the people, I would never know, there is a 6 year old girl living in the roadside of Esplanade, who is way better than me in terms intelligence when I was at her age, there is a differently abled child living in one of the HOPE boys homes whose general knowledge and IQ is higher than most of us, unless I joined this organization.
