New Milestones Reached

Seattle Fundraiser Gala for Journey of Hope 2018

As a human being we do something which is like paying off to the world because some of us are fortunate in some ways than others. The fundraiser event in Seattle this Fall on September 22nd was a heartwarming success. A whopping turnover of two hundred and seventy guests in all their generosity helped not only reach but exceed our fundraising goal.

Shining Achievement - Spreeha’s First Graduates

Shabnaz and Afsana are Spreeha’s first star graduates. They recently completed their Bachelors degree with a 1st Class, majoring in Marketing from National University, Bangladesh. We are extremely proud of their achievement for being the first ones from Spreeha and their community to complete under graduation! These two girls struggled against all odds to reach this stage in their life. They have been with Spreeha for half a decade and is an inspiration to us all.

Education Program Update

Stories of Success

A Tale of Sustainable Financial Empowerment

“There was a point in my life that I gave up on getting an education, but I'm glad that wasn't my fate," said Shabnaz, expressing her gratitude for Spreeha.
Shabnaz was asked at a very young age to sacrifice her education to become the breadwinner for her family. Despite the endless hardship and poverty she faced all around her, the spirit of education and advancing in life was still alive inside her. She persevered through it all.
By securing multiple scholarships based on her outstanding academic results, Shabnaz was able to finish high school while working part-time.
However, the expense of attending college was too much to bear, threatening her dream of earning a university degree. That's when Spreeha came into the picture. Spreeha's Scholarship for higher studies gave Shabnaz the opportunity to follow her ambition and pursue a university degree.
Today, Shabnaz is studying at the university, while also working as a community officer at Spreeha, which helps her support her family. Smart and hard-working Shabnaz dreams that she will be an influential professor someday.

Smiling faces, open hearts and helping hands have started 2018 off with a bang! 

Our continued services have already impacted several thousand lives as outlined in the January, February, and March.

For example, in March, Spreeha provided 384 people with life skills training. Among them, 80 were enrolled in the Adolescent Girls’ Club. Adolescent girls are some of the most vulnerable populations around the world. Spreeha is doing it's part by providing them information about their rights and responsibilities. We aim to provide a safe space for these young ladies to learn and grow through our Adolescent Girl's Club meetings.

Scholarship Program

Spreeha introduces a scholarship fund, ‘Shams & Nasreen scholarship’ in honor of Khawja Shamsuddin and Nasreen Shamsuddin, integral members of Spreeha who have been actively taking part in the building of communities and people's lives with the spirit of volunteerism and relentless love of people.These scholarships are being awarded at various levels to the students in need, some will be using it to pay exam fees, some for admission, and others for monthly school fees.

Molla’s Story

See how Spreeha is impacting lives from Molla’s story. Molla is a young, bright preschooler at Spreeha. Because of his early childhood education program, Molla gets to keep learning about the world around him and of course... this includes the animal kingdom - his favorite topic!

"One day I went to the zoo with my uncle. I saw snakes, elephants, crocodiles. But the animal that seemed to be the most fascinating one was the tiger. From then on, I love to play with tiger toys the most!"

Spreeha hopes to foster wonder and excitement like this through education for many more years! Thank you for joining us on this journey.
