The Sreepur Village, Bangladesh
The 'Sreepur Village, Bangladesh' is a UK based charity that runs and funds a women and children’s village in rural Bangladesh. The Sreepur Village works with destitute single-mothers and their children to give them the health, knowledge and skills they need to function independently in society. At the moment we support over 142 mothers and 280 children at the Village and over 250 children every month at our street children project in Dhaka. As a grass roots organisation we respond to local need and run other related programmes such as supporting vulnerable (e.g. trafficked or abandoned) children and fostering. We provide safety, a loving environment, food, clothing, education, and livelihood training so that the women who come to us can look forward to independent lives in their communities.
