From its inception, Shapla Doel Sangsad always wanted to improve the lives of the underprivileged women in the community by creating self-employment opportunities for them. In 2007, HSBC Bangladesh came forward and sponsored our first women’s entrepreneurship initiative to train underprivileged women in sewing/stitching and provide a sewing machine on successful completion of the training. This initiative has still been continuing with donations from individuals and institutions and supported 3500 women with training and free swing machine for some of the women to make a living. Needless to say that the initiative helped many families not only to come out of poverty but contribute to children’s education and healthcare.
Shapla Doel Sangsad is committed to continuing initiatives to improve the living standards and well-being of the underprivileged women in the community.
From January 1998, we start providing Free Doctor Consultancy services & Medical treatment to underprivileged people who are not financially capable of paying Consultancy fees to doctors. An MBBS Doctor from Dhaka visits the locality on a weekly basis. It proved to be very helpful, especially for underprivileged people with less access to health facilities. We still continue this successful project through the appointment of a Doctor (DMS & LMS) for the needy people in the locality.
