For some, a routine visit to the dentist is the norm but for many Bangladeshi's this is not the case.
As the majority of the women and children of The Sreepur Village have never ever been to a dentist the prevalence of their dental suffering is quite high.
So, as part of our programme to help rebuild the shattered lives of over 150 women and 400 children, we arrange, twice a year, a dental camp that provides our beneficiaries with a professional screening of dental problems. After examination, and depending on the treatment, some are provided with primary health care whilst others have to be referred to outside hospitals.
It is with the support of our donors that we are able to fund such costly camps so, if you would like to donate towards this much needed treatment then please email: firstname.lastname@example.org
As this week is Sexual Abuse and Sexual Violence Awareness Week we wanted to share with you the story of one of our beneficiaries. By raising awareness, we hope that more people will be able to help put an end to such brutalities.
Presently, at The Sreepur Village, 60% of the mothers have faced some form of sexual abuse or violence in their lifetime. We would like to share with you the story of Sathi who is unmarried and an under-aged mother of The Sreepur Village
To mark the end of Story Telling Week we are delighted to share with you some pictures of our new library, currently being updated.
Led by Matthew, our child development specialist, the school teachers have been busy working on modernising The Sreepur Village school library. Last year, we restructured our school and teaching system so that we could improve each-and-every child’s learning experience, and to keep in line with these plans, the library is now being reorganized, painted and most importantly filled with a selection of new book
In rural Bangladesh public transportation is a nightmare for women, especially for the poor and marginalised. If our mothers could learn vital skills in repairing bicycles such as how to fix a puncture, then this would help them in many ways. With such skills, the mothers could set up their own businesses, they could also save money by repairing their own bikes, and ultimately by learning to cycle this would not only give them freedom but would also be a life saver in the villages especially in the Char (River Island).
