Rose of Tralee Tara Talbot was guest of honour at HOPE’s Foundation Day in Kolkata on 4th November. Foundation Day is when everyone working with HOPE to change the lives of street children comes together in celebration.
There is a lot to be proud of: the talents and achievements of children in HOPE’s care as well as the progress of HOPEs projects in health, education, child protection, drug rehabilitation and vocational training.
Two groups from Ireland, the HOPE Himilayan Walkers and the HOPE Painters, as well as all volunteers with HOPE projects in Kolkata, joined in the celebrations. Maureen Forrest, Hon Director of HOPE said: It is wonderful to welcome Tara to Kolkata and I thank her for becoming a HOPE Ambassador. I also say thank you to the volunteer walkers and painters and to our volunteers in Kolkata for doing so much to help the poorest street and slum children.”
The Hope Foundation has been selected as the official international charity for the Rose of Tralee Festival.
