About Hope Foundation

A brief overview of our beliefs

Because every child matters...

D

The initiation of drug abuse always finds its roots in curiosity, peer pressure, wrong role modeling i.e. role modeling of a person who uses drugs or a sense of power associated with the use of drugs. The addicts are unaware of the pros and cons of the use of these substances. When the body develops a dependence on the drug the addicts make futile attempts to give up drugs; more often than not it is done by making a shift from one drug to another ultimately resulting in simultaneous use of two or more drugs. Also, gradually the tolerance level of the body increases so the addict resorts to larger amounts or more powerful drugs to attain the same level of high as before. Several peripheral reasons like tensions in the family, depression or health issues may also trigger dependence on addictive substances. The dealing of person with a substance can be at any of the three levels of use, misuse or abuse which are simultaneously identified with pleasure, problem and pain respectively. Addicts are generally identified and seek help when they are in the abuse phase and their dependency on the drug has grown beyond manageable as the drug exercises enormous control over them.

How we help

Behavior Change

Communities in “hard to reach” areas are deprived of quality information, education, training and exposure. Due to limited awareness opportunities, they follow many traditional practices which can be harmful for their quality of life. At DEHAT, we’re committed to helping a community changes & its behavior in a way that improves the people’s quality of life.  

System Strengthening

Hope Foundation feels that some govt. programs are not able to completely benefit the target groups because the community support is weak. Further, govt. programs may have poor results due to lack of knowledge about them. As always, we’re committed to strengthen the govt. systems working for the welfare and development of its communities through generating community support, capacity building, and awareness campaigns about programs, schemes and acts.

.

Demanding Govt. Action

Numerous government programs, schemes and acts are in place, but due to lack of awareness they are still out of reach to the eligible communities, especially marginalized peoples. We’re committed to making sure that everyone in our communities is aware of the government’s actions which might improve their quality of life or infringe upon their basic rights.

Providing Services

Hope Foundation believes that any organization cannot be an alternate to the government, and as a welfare state system the government is responsible for all kind of services. Due to this belief, we always empower communities to raise demands of their needs. DEHAT observes in some cases that government support for suffering communities is taking too long. Parallel to the demands, DEHAT is committed to providing its services to the community until the realization of government support.
