International Teachers Day


October 05, 2018

To mark International Teacher’s Day, we asked one of our teachers, Mohim, what it means to be a teacher in The Sreepur Village school.

Mohim said, “currently, I have 26 children in my class, but a new child can be enrolled at any time. Teaching vulnerable and destitute children is a completely new experience for me. They have their distinct behavioural traits which are completely different to others. I like to understand their past so I can help them in preparing for their future. I am really grateful for this job as a teacher because it has brought me so much experience.”

Mohim also explained, “when I joined The Sreepur Village, I found myself in a very tough situation and to be honest I didn’t expect to find the students so damaged, often using excessive anger and aggression as a defence mechanism. Each and every student has its own sorrowful memory of deprivation, abuse and loneliness, all of which is responsible for their strong behaviour. The supreme challenge I have is to ensure that these students have a very good learning environment.

Being a teacher means many things, for me it’s taking their past lives into consideration and focusing on their behaviour and social mannerisms so that they can learn the necessary skills and knowledge that will lead them to being confident individuals where they get to choose the life without poverty or fear.

The Sreepur Village, Shishu Polli Plus, was established at Sreepur in 1989 on a 15-acre site and has over the last 30 years, successfully re-integrated 897 mothers and 3043 children back into the community. The charity still strongly believes that poverty should not separate mothers from their children and in doing so continues to empower vulnerable women so that more families can gain a better quality of life for the future.
