Future Hope is a charitable organisation which provides opportunity through its homes, school, sports and medical programme for some of the most vulnerable children from the streets and slums of Kolkata, India. The charity uses rugby in particular to instil discipline and a sense of purpose in many of the children; some of these children have even gone on to represent India at rugby.
Harlequins have had a long association with the charity called Future Hope whose rugby team have become affiliated to the Premiership rugby club and are now known as the Future Hope Harlequins. Over the last 20 years, Harlequins Senior players have visited numerous times to deliver coaching and equipment – inspiring the next generation of local players.
