To mark International Day of The Girl Child, we would like to share with you Yasmin’s story of success and how her dreams came true…
My name is Yasmin and I love travelling, gardening and tailoring. When I was three years old I was taken to The Sreepur Village. This is when my life began, it was an amazing experience but sometimes I missed home and my family, but I now understand that it was not possible for me to be with them. During my time at The Sreepur Village I learned tailoring and how to make products by hand, this helped me a lot.
I am 28 years old now and when I finished grade 9 I got a job in Dhaka. After one year, I suddenly got a call from The Sreepur village, they were calling to offer me a job as a store assistant in our onsite shop which is also open to the public. I accepted the offer because The Sreepur village is my home, my nostalgia and my family. Actually this was my dream, and now working as a store officer I can say all my dreams have finally come true.
Before we start a new week, we would like to end on another thank you to trustee, Dr.Sheila Fitzpatrick, who is also retiring from The Sreepur Village board of trustees.
