Spreeha Fights COVID-19

We hope you and your family are staying safe during this difficult, uncertain and rapidly changing times. As the situation around coronavirus (COVID-19) continues to evolve, we want to take a moment to share what we are doing at Spreeha to support our communities.

At Spreeha, we recognize the role we play in the communities we serve. We want to ensure that we are doing everything we can to protect our communities from coronavirus. Our team, consisting of doctors, and health and community workers, are creating community level awareness through counseling, and door to door visits. We are educating the community about preventative measures such as hand washing, social distancing, home quarantine, etc.

We are temporarily closing our pre- and after-school programs, adolescent girls' club activities, and mom’s club for the safety of the children and pregnant mothers.

Members in our communities are very vulnerable to coronavirus not only because of higher likelihood of getting infected in heavily crowded urban slums, but also, they are the most adversely affected economic group. Because of significant slowdown of economic activities, their livelihood is directly affected as most of them are daily wage earners.

Therefore, we urge you to stay with us during this crucial time! Please contact us at info@spreeha.org if you need additional information.

As we deal with so much uncertainty, there is one thing about which we are certain – we are a family and together, we will come through this, stronger and more deeply connected than ever before.

Maruf Dreams to be a Fashion Designer!

Maruf is a seventh grade student attending Spreeha's after-school program in the Rayer Bazar slum area in Dhaka, Bangladesh. Art is his passion. He has been busy with designs and crafts. He designs and sews, and loves to paint and design cards when he is in the Spreeha's after-school club. His favorite subject is night sky, as he now learns that sky is the limit!
Spreeha supports children like Maruf to follow their dreams from an early age. Spreeha’s after-school program is designed to provide support and guidance to school going children. It helps them build their social skills and prevent school drop outs. The program encourages skills such as art, presentation, public speaking, debating etc.
