Thirty years ago, Pat Kerr laid the foundations of The Sreepur Village and over these 30 remarkable years, has, with the continued support of our donors, helped to empower the lives of thousands of women, keeping more families together and giving them hope for a brighter future. To mark this most significant event, we have produced ‘Sreepur’, a luxury candle designed and hand-poured by the UK chandler and home fragrance expert, Rachel Vosper. Every candle sold, 50% of the proceeds will go towards helping more families in Bangladesh, lighting the way for a brighter future.

At regular intervals, and for three months, a group (12-15) of our mothers and their families move to a rehabilitation centre, known as the half-way house and as a reintegration step into the community. Earlier this month, 15 mothers went to the half-way house and the local community. They began their lives in a new and independent way.

As we welcome in a New Year, we also look forward to celebrating our 30th anniversary this year. It only seems like yesterday that in a small village in Gazipur, Bangladesh, the foundations, of what is now known as The Sreepur Village charity (Shishu Polli Plus) were being laid.
Thirty years on, and we still believe that poverty should not separate a mother from her children. With the continued support of our donors, we will strive to provide more women and children with life-saving resources, focusing on health and nutrition as well as the well-being of every individual, so that more families can be given hope for a brighter future.
Thank you for being a part of this 30-year journey and I look forward to sharing our futures successes with you.
