Bangalore/Hope Home/Visit Report

Dear Friends,

1. We(Sivanarayanan.P & Myself) have visited to HOPE HOME, No.2, 5th Cross,Anjinapa Layout, Kothanur, Bangalore – 77 on 15MAR09 and had discussion with S Obed Haokip(9902933690), who running this home.

2. About S Obed Haokip: Basically S Obed Haokip from manipur & settled in banglaore in 90’s. Initially he was working in Church and realized lot of kids at manipur not able to continuo there education because of local terrorist activity and economical reason. So initially he brought near 25 kids from Manipur & put it in different homes in bangalore. This was really helped for these kids but issue will be, They needs to stay in different homes and they are using different food, etc.So this was one of the biggest challenges to adopt different language and food. (Even nearly 20 kids was sent to our Kadesh Childrens Happy Home)

3. About Hope Home: Haokip initially started this home with three kids & now reached 30 kids in his home. Ultimately he converted his HOUSE as “Hope Home”, Haokip family and 30 students staying together in this Home/House.

4. Education: 25 kids from this home going to Parikrma School, So absolutely free education for this 25 students & remaining 5 students going to nearby school. So there is not much education requirement for this home, because of free education, uniform, book, note, etc will come from Parikrma itself.

5. Requirement for this home:

5.1. Home needs small library

5.2. Home needs 2 – 3 computers. (You can donate any of your used/working computers)

6. Education project at Manipur: We have discussed with Haokip to start India Sudar education project at manipur, He also really interested/plan to start one schools at manipur. We explained our Individual Education project to identifiyed any dropout students from manipur to start initial activity. Any way this will be decided based on initial requirement and visit.
