Victory Day 2019


December 17, 2019

Yesterday, The Sreepur Village celebrated Victory Day, the most precious day of the Bangalee (Bangladeshi) people as this was the day their country was liberated from the Pakistani occupation forces in 1971 after a nine-month long bloodstained War of Liberation.

Every Year, The Sreepur Village celebrates this memorable day by hosting a series of colorful events.

In the morning, as part of the day's celebrations, The Sreepur Village’s Cub Scout team attended the National Victory Day programme that was being held at Sreepur upazila (sub-district) and we are proud to say our cub team came second place.

In the afternoon, the children and mothers watched a movie named “Aguner Prosmoni” and then all the children competed in an art competition at The Sreepur Village campus.

Finally, a discussion on the war of liberation and a prize giving ceremony was held and it was well attended by all members of staff, our mothers and their children.

We asked some of our beneficiaries to tell us what Victory Day means to them, and here is what they said:

“I am Rina, I read in class two at Shishu Polli Plus (The Sreepur Village) School. I think victory means freedom of joy, I feel free now.”

“I am Manik and I read in class five. In my perspective I think victory means happiness. I feel proud for our country. I love my country.”

Meherunesa, one of our mothers said, “Victory Day means we can tell people this is our country, and this land is ours, we have some freedom. No one can stop our freedom.”

The Sreepur Village strongly believes that poverty should not separate children from their mothers and, in doing so, provides more families with a place they can call home and teaches them life-saving skills that will empower them to a future of independence.
