The 31st March is known as Big Board Game Day and here, in the heart of Bangladesh, the children of The Sreepur Village just love to play board games, especially during the monsoon’s rainy months.
Playing a Board Game enables you to socially interact with your friends, and for hundreds of children in Bangladesh it is an incentive for keeping them off some of the most dangerous streets of Dhaka.
If you donate £20 today, then you will be giving the children of The Sreepur Village a Board Game that they can play with for years and years to come. To give a gift that gives visit: https://bit.ly/2iO2lRA
Out of the blue, at the tender age of 13, Chia found herself sitting on a bridal stage, about to marry a man who was 35 years old. Her parents had arranged the match, finding the man from their nearby locality in Bhairab.
He was a small and medium-sized enterprise (SME) businessman who occasionally sold vegetables and fruits on the street. Chia's aspirations and youthful dreams were abruptly interrupted by this sudden marriage. Instead of books, she found herself with kitchen utensils in her hands. She went from feeling like a princess to becoming a servant overnight.
Sumi's journey is a testament to her resilience and determination to create a better life for herself and her child. Her success serves as an inspiration to all those facing adversity, reminding us of the transformative power of support, training, and the opportunity to rebuild one's life.
