The UK based ‘Sreepur Village, Bangladesh’ funds and oversees ‘Shishu Polli Plus’ (translated as Childrens Village Plus) a small non-religious, non-political organisation based in Sreepur, rural Bangladesh. SPP works with destitute mothers and their children to give them the health, knowledge and skills thay need to function independently in society. At the moment over 100 mothers and 450 children are supported by SPP. As a grass roots organisation theyrespond to local need and run other related programmes such as supporting vulnerable (eg trafficked or abandoned) children and fostering. They provide safety, a loving environment, food, clothing, education, and vocational training so that the people who come to the village can look forward to independent lives in their communities.
Sarah visited Sreepur and the village in Feb 2009, ‘I was deeply moved by the care, love and support offered to the women and children, to give them the rehabilitation, learning and support each and everyone of them deserve. I can’t wait to visit again soon’.
