10th December 2017 - World Human Rights Day


December 10, 2017

“Where, after all, do universal human rights begin? In small places, close to home -- so close and so small that they cannot be seen on any maps of the world” Eleanor Roosevelt (The Chair of the drafting committee of The Universal Declaration of Human Rights).

Today, the world will be observing Human Rights Day, and if you follow The Sreepur Village, you will see how we wholly support this declaration.

There are gross violations of human rights everywhere and in every nation and society, and particularly in poor developing countries, it is harsher for women and children.

The Sreepur Village, in Bangladesh, has for the last 29 years been working hard to ensure the human rights for the country’s women and children, and throughout these years, it has supported over 1000 mothers and 3200 children in aiding their rehabilitation and livelihoods so that they can feel empowered when living independently in today’s modern day society. 

To #Standup4humanrights the mothers and children of the Sreepur Village stand proud.
