Sreepur Village 1989 – 2014: 25 Remarkable Years
Sreepur Village opened its doors to those in need in February 1989 and now celebrates its 25th anniversary. During those 25 years over 2100 children and more than 670 mothers have been cared for at Sreepur giving them the help they needed to make lives of their own.
One of the first foster programmes in Bangladesh has been developed through the project, giving further support to hundreds of children. There is now an outreach programme working with street children and the drop in centre by one of the railway stations in Dhaka is giving support to children facing poverty, abuse and neglect.
Last year more than 1100 people died when a garment factory collapsed not far from Sreepur and the project is now working to support many of the families affected by the disaster.
The money from the sale of Sreepur cards can really make a world of difference.
Sreepur Village was founded by Former British Airways stewardess Pat Kerr, and the Outreach Project extends the work of the village community into the outlying regions, enabling even more women to benefit.
