What is a HoPE Center?
HoPE Centers are after-school centers where severely impoverished children from rural Indian communities are provided with Phonemic Intelligence training, a nutritious mini-meal, yoga, personal transformation lessons, love and support for a HoPE filled future and a new positive identity.

Children who grow up in severely impoverished rural communities of India have little chance of happiness. They lack the basic necessities and support to maintain their health and their education. Hopeless, they often follow in the footsteps of family members who lead lives of hard labor, begging or fall victim to an early death.
HoPE Centers provide the poorest children of rural Indian communities a safe-haven for development. Each after-school center hosts an innovative curriculum as well as basic necessities including nutrition, love and support. Many of our students have gone on to college with a real opportunity to leave their poverty roots behind and bring back positive and sustainable change back to their communities.

What Happens at A HoPE Center?
Our HoPE Centers help children in need transform into the best that they can be- highly intelligent, positive and compassionate individuals who give back to their communities.
On a regular basis, they are given:
Mini-meals food to provide protein and nutrition they do not receive at home.
Dr. Pillai’s innovative Phonemic Intelligence technology, a brain changing technology that unlocks the latent intelligence living inside us all.
Loving support and positive social interaction with other HoPE children, our selfless volunteers and visiting donors.
Guided yoga exercises to give them both mental and physical strength.
Compassionate life skills we inculcate through regular community volunteering, encouragement, and recognition of compassionate behaviors and actions.
