Wednesday's word is 'Trustee' and as part of this weeks Trustees Week, today we are delighted to share with you the remarkable work of one of our Trustees, Janette Porter.
We asked Janette if she could summarise The Sreepur Village in three words what would she say, Janette says, " Respect, Empowering and Sincere"
As we celebrate the recent success of our Patron and British Paralympian, Dame Sarah Storey, we would also like to celebrate the aspirations and goals of other women who in the face of adversity have also never given up.
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.
Ignorance and wrong beliefs surrounding disability, compounded with a negative and derogatory attitude of the community (including family members) have contributed to the marginal development in the disability sector in Bangladesh.
