All of the mothers of The Sreepur Village are required to participate in our education programme. When mothers are admitted here we assess their previous educational qualifications and we arrange proper schooling for them. Mothers start up from literacy class and study up to secondary school certificate. Indeed, even some of our mothers continue to higher studies. A large portion of our mothers are admitted to the Bangladesh Open University; here they do not have to study hard like the general curriculum institutes and they have enough time for life skills lessons.
Rubina is a little different to our mothers and she attends regular school with our older girls. Rubina, a single mother, came to us four months ago with her seven-month-old child. She is now in grade eight and loves going to school with other girls. Yesterday, when she was returning from the school, we caught her on camera wearing her school uniforms! Let’s make a noble wish for her better future!
Help us to educate mothers like Rubina to enable them to provide a better life for themselves and their children

Out of the blue, at the tender age of 13, Chia found herself sitting on a bridal stage, about to marry a man who was 35 years old. Her parents had arranged the match, finding the man from their nearby locality in Bhairab.
He was a small and medium-sized enterprise (SME) businessman who occasionally sold vegetables and fruits on the street. Chia's aspirations and youthful dreams were abruptly interrupted by this sudden marriage. Instead of books, she found herself with kitchen utensils in her hands. She went from feeling like a princess to becoming a servant overnight.
