Hope in Life Foundation is engaged in several projects both at the local and global levels.
Project – Rehabilitate girls ages 11-17 rescued from human trafficking in India (ACTIVE)
Hope in Life Foundation is collaboratively working with another non-profit to deliver this project. Rehabilitation of 100-250 girls includes and is not limited to (1) building a facility where girls can stay safe and get educated; (2) enabling girls to continue with their computer education. Currently the girls have less than 10 laptops/PCs to help them learn coding. Hope in Life Foundation is actively seeking donations from corporations and individuals to keep moving this project along. Laptop donations are highly appreciated.
Project – Safe Campuses
Projects under this category are run on campuses. Students and their families are educated on Title IX. Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 protects people from discrimination based on sex in education programs and activities that receive federal financial assistance.
The Title IX regulation describes the conduct that violates Title IX. Examples of the types of discrimination that are covered under Title IX include sexual harassment, the failure to provide equal opportunity in athletics, and discrimination based on pregnancy. To enforce Title IX, the U.S. Department of Education maintains an Office for Civil Rights, with headquarters in Washington, DC and 12 offices across the United States.
