The Hornbeam House orphanage is home to 11 children and two live-in house parents. It is located in the town of Kalimpong, West Bengal, India, and is run by the Hope Family Trust, our operational NGO partner in India. The Hope Family Trust runs Hornbeam House and many other local projects and believes that every person needs and deserves to have hope. Kiran Chettri, Managing Trustee, says, “In this world of suffering, there are many unfortunate situations in which people lose hope. They become helpless through death, sickness, poverty or war.” Their team of staff and volunteers are eager to stand in the gap and help those people by delivering sustainable high-impact, community-based services to the poor and needy. Hope Family Trust is an independent, government registered NGO with the simple aim of transforming lives and bringing hope to those with no hope.
