Dear Sponsors,

SOS Children’s Village Bogra is located in a bit hilly area and the buildings are designed and made appropriate with land pattern. The whole area is very lovely and worth seeing. The Village has 10 family houses (total 52 boys and 59 girls), community house, community centre, co-workers’ quarters, social centre and a college.

Most of our children successfully passed their last Annual Examination and are doing well with their studies in respective classes. All the children, mothers, aunts and co-workers participated in Annual Picnic held at Saudia Park, Sherpur, 40 kilometers away from SOS Children’s Village Bogra. The park is worth seeing and the surrounding area of this park bears many historical evidences. Everybody especially the children enjoyed the programme and at the same time gathered new and rich experiences. The day was a memorable one.

Our girls participated in School Sports Competition of National Level and won championship in Volleyball tournament like last year. The news was highlighted in all the Daily Newspapers of the country. A girl became champion in National Tennis Competition (below 14) both in singles and doubles.

Owing to the brilliant academic and co-curricular performances this has attained reputation throughout the country. Every year we experience a mad rush of parents and guardians to admit their wards in our College. The present number of students in different classes in the College is 632. Different important National Days, SOS Day etc. are observed in the College with due solemnity.

Family Strengthening Programme

As child welfare organization, SOS Social Centre is pledge bound to ensure the child rights among the beneficiaries through the Family Strengthening Programme. It includes education, health, food-stuff and medical facilities to the selected children. We fulfill the demand of educational requirements like monthly school fees, examination fees, stationery etc. to the beneficiaries. Special coaching for weaker children is provided to cope with the school’s syllabus. The selected children are vulnerable and their caregivers are unable to provide sufficient meals to the children even sometimes they have to skip their meal. We fulfill the demand of food among selected children by providing rice, salt, lentil and edible oil in every month.

With regards and best wishes.

Very sincerely yours,
