Bangladesh (Shishu Polli Plus)
The UK based 'Sreepur Village, Bangladesh' funds and oversees 'Shishu Polli Plus' (translated as Childrens Village Plus) a small non-religious, non-political organisation based in Sreepur, rural Bangladesh. SPP works with destitute mothers and their children to give them the health, knowledge and skills they need to function independently in society. At the moment over 150 mothers and 540 children are supported by SPP. As a grass roots organisation we respond to local need and run other related programmes such as supporting vulnerable (eg trafficked or abandoned) children and fostering. We provide safety, a loving environment, food, clothing, education, and vocational training so that the people who come to us can look forward to independent lives in their communities.
We have recently employed two social workers in the Kurigram/Chilmari region of northern Bangladesh where climate change is threatening the lives of women and children living on 'chars' - sand banks in river deltas.
