We are delighted to share with you photos of The Sreepur Village's newly opened beauty Salon.
Trisha, our Chair of Trustees, travelled from the UK to unveil the new salon.
It was because of a generous donor that The Sreepur Village was able to fit out and set up this small beauty salon, located near the DBR factory, who are supporting us in this new venture, and close to Shatir Bazaar, one of the busiest market areas.
Being located in such a central area where more than 3000 women work means our mothers are able to have the opportunity to build proper management skills and customer relationships which, in turn, will empower them further when they go back to their respective communities.
The beauty therapist, Shuborna, has been receiving beauty training through The Ministry of Women and Child Affairs, a national governmental programme. Joining her, at the salon, are six mothers from The Sreepur Village who are on a 3- month rotational programme so that they can gain their livelihood training through The Sreepur Village beauty salon.
The Sreepur Village Beauty Salon is proud to be able to offer services such as haircuts, hair-colouring, pedicures, manicures and facials.
Life can sometimes throw unimaginable challenges at us, but it's the human spirit's resilience and determination that can lead to remarkable stories of triumph.
Lia's life is a testament to this spirit, marked by adversity, courage, and ultimate success. Lia's story draws parallels to other stories of perseverance, and highlights the crucial role of organisations like Sreepur Village in transforming lives.
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.
