Trustees Week 2020


November 06, 2020

This #TrusteesWeek2020 we have been giving thanks to one of our trustees. Ruby Porter, for her involvement and years of dedication to the vulnerable mothers and children living in The Sreepur Village charity in Bangladesh.

Today, Ruby tells us why she is so proud to be part of The Sreepur Village charity.

"I am proud to be a trustee of such an incredible charity. Empowering women is so vital to looking after families! The women we work with are abused and destitute and when they leave the village, they leave us with skills, often employment, and with dignity!


I have been an integral member of the board of trustees for 16 years and have thoroughly enjoyed every minute of the work I do as I know our hard work makes a difference to the women and their children at Sreepur!

It’s so important during this pandemic that we continue to support this charity and help one of the most vulnerable countries on the planet.

My work Your support makes a difference"

On behalf of The Sreepur Village, we would like to thank Ruby for her continued dedication to the mothers and children living in The Sreepur Village, for her insprational skills in textile development in Bangladesh and her role as a trustee.

At Sreepur we do not have an art therapist but we do have a resident artist, Milon, who often teaches therapeutic art in his classes as the majority of children that come to live at Sreepur have witnessed or been part of a traumatic experience.

In 2018, with the aid of CIPRB and one of their trustees, Becky Horsbrugh, the Sreepur Village started to run swimming lessons in their pond in the village grounds.  The lessons, since this date, take place every year during the months of June and July, and are now taught by a number of Sreepur staff who have since been trained to facilitate the programme each year.

Approximately sixty children, aged 6-12, take part each year. They will learn how to swim 25 metres freestyle, tread water or float for 30 seconds as well as perform a rescue from dry
land.  As half the number of deaths from drowning occur in 1-5 year olds, having an older child trained in dry-land rescue is pivotal in striving to keep this devastating number down.
