Community Outreach

INTRODUCTION

Beyond its regular scope of social goals, the Hope Foundation and Research Centre is faced with challenges wherein unexpected issues arise; issues that could influence a considerable number of the individuals within a society. These are often the consequence of factors extending beyond one’s control and affecting personal and social order.

At times like these, the Hope Foundation and its educational and research institutions step up to offer their assistance in any way they can to alleviate the suffering. The Trust / Society coalesces and directs its resources and energy towards causes that could have a strong social impact.

“If a community, a society and a nation have to become great, they have to respect and empower the women.”

Women’s empowerment isn’t an event of the day that is celebrated.  It is a ceaseless effort to encourage our women to feel strong by supporting them to be confident to do everything that they aspire for. As academic and research institutions, we recognize our responsibility in nurturing the minds of future women leaders or professionals; which is why we take the initiative to host women-centric events.

Hope Foundation and its educational and research institutions strongly believe that our lives are richer when we give and share, and that great inner joy comes from helping others to better their lives. True joy, real prosperity, and lasting happiness are possible when all of us come together to take care of each other, respect each other’s rights, and help each other to grow.

Giving takes you out of yourself and allows you to expand beyond earthly limitations. True joy lies in the act of giving without an expectation of receiving something in return. As Mahatma Gandhi said, “To find yourself, lose yourself in the service of others.”
