Child Rights Week


October 21, 2019

The Sreepur Village, Bangladesh is celebrating Child Rights Week with a series of events which includes a rally, art completion, awareness workshop, film festival and a cultural programme.

All children have the right to the best health care possible, safe water to drink, nutritious food, a clean and safe environment, and information to help them stay well. Every year The Sreepur Village celebrates Child Rights Day to emphasise these rights for children.

Ms Shanta is the coordinator of our child and mother care department which is mainly centered on children’s care, she told us, “every child has rights, we should love, care and respect them. We should always respect their rights and offer them a chance to fully develop and enjoy their childhood.

We provide all our mothers with parental support in developing and nurturing their growing children. We are trying to make our mothers aware of their responsibilities towards their children under the age of 18. We are trying to prevent any violence and abuse and continue to promote the legal and social rights of children so that they can look forward to a bright future.

Hridoy is 11 years old and is in grade five. He says, “every country, every organisation in the world should give us our basic rights so that we can enjoy our childhood happily. Before The Sreepur Village, when I was living in my community, I face many problems such as unclean water and nutritious food, these things simply didn’t exist, but now in The Sreepur village I can get these things and more. I really hope the whole world will be like The Sreepur Village so that other children, like me, can enjoy their childhood without any distress.”

Since lockdown was announced, our mothers have been busy hand-making Christmas decorations made out of bamboo strips, carved from the trees naturally grown in the heart of The Sreepur Village, the place they now call home and where they get to learn a number of new vocational skills that will empower their families with a future of hope and independence.
