Eradication of Poverty Day


October 16, 2020 8 Comments

The Sreepur Village charity is working with destitute women who are living in extreme poverty in Bangladesh. Unfortunately, they have have no way of providing a safe, secure, healthy and bright future for themselves and their families.

Since 1989, The Sreepur Village has believed that poverty should not pull children apart from their mothers and in doing so continues 31 years later to provide more than 100 mothers and over 300 children with a safe place they can call home, invaluable health care services, an education, and a number of vocational skills.

 

It is these skills that will provide more families with financial security, independence and hope for a brighter and poverty free future.

One of the areas we train our mothers in is homestead gardening and goat and duck rearing. Imagine never having had a means to provide nutritious vegetables for your children? Our agricultural and literacy programme enables mothers to learn the vocabulary associated with homestead gardening, which means growing your own healthy vegetables in rice sacks.

Growing vegetables in sacks means they are transportable, which means when a mother returns, after three years, to her community she is able to provide a constant source of food for her family wherever she goes. Along with climate change being prevalent, growing vegetables in sacks will also help prevent poverty. 

Another programme that helps eradicate poverty is our goat and duck rearing training, by training our mothers in this area means they can provide a constant source of food and income for their families.

If you would like to donate to anyone of our training programmes and help eradicate poverty for more impoverished women and their children then please click here.

It's British Science Week, 11th 20th March, and one of the activities that the Sreepur Village runs is the creation and nurturing of sack gardens.

This is an aspect of the Mothers Talking Everyday Science project and is a particularly important activity because when the mothers return to mainstream society they will be experienced in how to prepare a container in which to grow food plants and how to care for them.
