HSBC Visit 2021


April 23, 2021

For ten years, HSBC has been supporting The Sreepur Village, focusing on their education programme.

In October 2020, HSBC generously donated BDT 2,444,840 which is approximately £21,000 which will fund a one year project.

 

We recently enjoyed a visit from HSBC where they got to talk to our mothers and children.  They watched our girls cricket team in action, played football with the children and even got stuck into some homestead gardening.

 

    

 

The project, that HSBC is kindly funding, aims to enable the independence of 140 mothers with their children. They are encouraging each mother to leave with at least two skills by following an intensive training and development schedule. 

  

Each mother will be trained in one of the following vocational skills such as Tailoring, Garments, Homestead gardening (‘rainbow gardens’ providing a range of different nutrients), Sack Gardening (for those with very limited space), Nursery plant propagation, Duck and Goat rearing.

 

Bamboo crafting (making both village and saleable articles), Moori (puffed rice) and snack making, candle making, practice in running a small shop, jute products, hand loom products, tie dye, embroidery and mirrors.

Each mother will also learn necessary universal skills in financial literacy, literacy, self esteem and confidence development as well as small business management.

HSBC are also supporting additional facilities for mothers with disabilities. These include online training for staff on counselling with ongoing support, psychiatrist and psychologist support, online occupational therapy support, basic health and nutrition training and basic legal awareness

We are so grateful to HSBC for their support and generosity in enabling our impoverished mothers to leave The Sreepur Village empowered with independence and dignity.

If you would like to sponsor The Sreepur Village in one of their projects, then please email fundraising@sreepurvillage.org.

“My man used to beat me with whatever he could find around him. One day he broke my hand and acted like nothing had happened. My mother in law said that I don’t need any medical attention as I was not bleeding. But it hurt! It hurt really badly! And this made no difference to my husband.” Ayesha said while pointing to her left wrist.

While our mothers participate daily in various livelihood training programmes, their children go to our school inside our project. Hailing from some of the poorest regions of Bangladesh, these young children have witnessed family trauma and pain and therefore are extremely vulnerable. We are blessed to have such kind and caring teachers who take extra care of our children.
