Janette Porter - Appointed Chair of Trustees June 2023


June 28, 2023

My name is Janette Porter and I am the daughter of Ruby Porter MBE, a long standing supporter and former trustee of Sreepur Village who continues to inspire me with her unrelenting passion for Sreepur village. I have been a trustee for eight years the two year's previous to that I was an advisor to the board of trustees.

I have worked at Sreepur with Ruby on three occasions and I returned to Sreepur early in June of this year, which was a wonderful opportunity for me to engage with our mothers and their children in their daily life at Sreepur Village, seeing how they are transformed with hope through enriched activities, training and creativity.

I am a lecturer in Education and Early Childhood Studies at Liverpool John Moores University where I also sit as a member on the University Ethics and Research Council. I am also co-founder of a choir in Sudley Sings which is for young adults with learning disabilities.

  

I am a mother of five children and I am passionate about helping to transform the lives of our mothers and their children at Sreepur, empowering them to be advocates of independence, inclusion and equality.  

 As I specialise in governance, I oversee safeguarding at Sreepur to enable the mothers and their children to access the best life they can.  This can only be done with a working team, made up of Bangladesh and UK staff, advisors and trustees who are only able to sustain their work at Sreepur with the mothers and children because of our invaluable global support.

You are the people who make our work possible, your donations keep this outstanding non-governmental organisation alive, you directly transform the lives of others!

I may be the new chair but I am a tiny cog in the mechanism that transforms the lives of thousands of female-led families.  

Please enable me to continue our great work by contributing to donate and support us. We in Bangladesh and UK appreciate every penny you donate! It goes a very long way.
