Introducing Project SAVE

One of my favorite things to hear about is children helping others.  There’s something just so inspiring about it!

Give HoPE for the Holidays

New Shoes and Clothes Give Self Esteem and Confidence to Children

We have big plans for the greatest day of the year for our HoPE children…

Diwali is The Festival of Lights and also a holiday on the level of Christmas, Chanukah, Kwanza, etc. Join this year’s celebration by helping us give gifts of beautiful new clothes, school bags, talent shows and fun prizes at all of our 44 HoPE Learning Centers.  

Holiday Charity Drive Goals:

1)    To give all HoPE Center children and their families the greatest Diwali celebration ever

2)    To provide beautiful new clothes and school bags to 1,540 children in 44 HoPE Learning Centers

3)    To fill all of these children with HoPE and Light to last all year long and beyond

We Need YOUR Help:

Bringing Light and HoPE to so many children is not an easy feat.

We need to raise $30,000 to cover the costs of feasts and gifts for all of the children and families – 1540 in total!

Even if you are a monthly sponsor, please contribute an additional one-time generous gift for this holiday:

Be A Ray of HoPE for 945 Children!

HoPE Expands Rapidly in the Spring- 27 New Communities to be Served

Spring is a magical season full of new growth, new colors, and new light. No matter where you live, Spring brings the energy of new opportunity and excitement for what lies ahead. Tripura Foundation is utilizing this energy of Spring to ambitiously find new communities and new families that need our help most through our HoPE Learning Centers. 

Our goal is to plant the seeds of HoPE within 27 more impoverished and neglected communities this Spring and watch this HoPE bloom as we open 27 new Learning Centers in July.

Yadeesh, the Tripura Trustee in India, shares this enthusiasm for new growth as he describes the heart-warming process of selecting new locations and the most deserving children and families for the new HoPE Learning Centers.

If you are interested in donating to Tripura Foundation, this is a great place to start. Cultivate Hope within yourself and feel renewed as you contribute to a new life for these children, families and communities.

Spring into Action for HoPE!



We Need You to Build HoPE

Each HoPE Learning Center selects 35 poor children from small rural villages.  Most of these children have a single parent or no parents due to neglect or abuse- the family is just struggling to survive.  They do not have role models to show them a different way of life.


This is where YOU come in.  YOU become a role model for these children by supporting their education and providing an opportunity to change their destiny.

 Three Gifts of HoPE that Keep on Giving:

  1. Building Confidence: as the children learn to take proper care of their bodies with healthy nutrition, hygiene, and yoga, they begin to develop self-esteem and confidence.
  2. Developing Knowledge: as each student receives academic tutoring, this knowledge will open the door to new possibilities.  As children become more comfortable with their school lessons and expand their interests; they can help their fellow students develop better study skills.
  3. Awakening Consciousness: Phonemic Intelligence teaches the children the power of sound to awaken their consciousness and cultivate discipline, courage and emotional stability.
  4. Building leadership, self-esteem, academic achievement and personal transformation tools will enable the children to create a brighter future.  As these children become more confident they begin to help others and act as role models within their own families, school, and communities. 

 Make an impact in the life of a child, a family and an entire village.



HoPE Brings us Together

This Spring, the HoPE of a new opportunity for these children reminds us that we are all responsible for taking care of our global community. We all need a role model to encourage us and we all need education to inspire us.  This HoPE of a brighter future is what brings us together.  Let us help these children move beyond the limitations of poverty as we join together to bring more HoPE to the world in 2012.

Sunny- Volunteer MST Teacher at Selaiyur Boystown

At age 20, Sunny is a student in the second year of university studying Bio-informatics.  His career objective is to bring down the cost of drug discovery.

He volunteers at the Selaiyur Boystown.  In his own words:

“I am very excited about the new MST. Its a delight to teach the techniques to the boys as I get to witness first hand the transformation in the lives of these children. Its heart warming to see these children glow with light.

Whenever I go to Boystown, and the boys see me, they welcome me with the sounds. They are very enthused about it.

I have witnessed increasing levels of self-esteem and “can-do” spirit among the boys as they continue to do the techniques.

In the past I have explored NLP and other mind training programmes but I have never seen anything work like this. I always remind the boys to keep saying the sounds throughout the day, that way they become “friends” with the sounds.

The management at Boystown inform me that they have seen an increase in the well being of the boys as reflected in better grades and better athletic performance. It gives me incredible joy to be part of this transformation. It is transforming me too.

But most importantly it is teaching the boys to dream and to let go of their fears and take action.

In particular, they love the sound “Ah” and the technique “Ara Kara”, it gives them a strong dose of energy and positivity and they demand more and more of it.

I wish every institution concerned with Child welfare experiment with the MST.

From my own experience, I consider MST the most effective tool to transform the lives of these children.

Thank you
