Tripura Foundation energizes with HoPE. We share science-based, transformational tools through educational programs that activate the highest potential of people oppressed by poverty. The result? Empowered children, inspired families and uplifted communities who open doors to a world of peace, love and prosperity for all.
Vigneshwarn, in 9th grade, comes from a home with an alcoholic father. He was emotionally troubled and not able to concentrate on his studies. Our mentors noticed this and decided to help him lessen this problem. They gave him a special role in the team that distributes monthly food and supply rations to poor elderly villagers. It was his first experience helping others and he quickly stated how great it was to be able to give something to someone else. Rather than feel powerless, he now feels empowered because he realizes that he too has much to give. HoPE Learning Centers not only help children like Vigneshwam, they also empower them as champions within their communities!
Santhanalakshmi is one of many amazing young Tripura hope hero's from the Trichy area in India. Early one morning she and two of her classmates were bathing in a river near their village. Suddenly two of the girls were swept away by the strong current and had been pulled down stream. Santhanalakshmi quickly realised what has happened, swam to her friends to try to rescue them. Their legs had been buried in some sand below. She began digging the sand away to free her friends and after nearly ten minutes of diving under water and digging away the sand she was able to free both her friends and help them to safety.

Mohini (Elaine) Kueper, Global Director of Tripura Foundation USA, recently celebrated her birthday, during which she made a personal request: a plea for help in raising the funds we desperately need to continue making a difference in the lives of those less fortunate.
She says, “Like any mother, I cannot turn my back on my children in great need. Before the end of 2014, we need to raise $100,000. For my birthday, I'm asking you to contribute anything you can to help my children. Even $10 feeds and educates a child for a month.”
