Kevin’s Annual Report 06/07 Message

It has been a good year for Shohanabhuti Bangladesh Trust by God’s grace. We added 3,135 precious children over the last year for a total of 9,168 children in all the projects. In addition, we have 63 projects serving these precious children throughout 20 districts of Bangladesh. All the projects and SBT staffs are striving to help:

Bangladeshi Children: Touch Heaven and Change Earth

It continues to be my dream that Bangladeshi Children will be in the forefront of changing their world, nation, community, family and their life for the betterment of humankind.

This is my last Annual Report as I will be moving on to a regional role in Asia with Compassion International. As of 1 July 2007, SBT board hired Kajal Sengupta to lead SBT as the Country Director. I’m very happy that Kajal has joined the SBT family, on the next page is an introduction.

The hardest part about leading SBT over the last three years was when one of our children died. Thirteen children died during this time. Each was a fresh pain to my heart and a reminder that the work of SBT is very important for the children of Bangladesh. In memorial, I would like to list the names here of these precious children that have joined our Father in heaven:

Swapon, Jonny, Linkon, Hasan, Sanjoy, Bablu, Kakoli, Nithun, Bobita, Tonushri, Likshon, Rezumoni and Sumon.

I would like to personally say thank you to all project staff, SBT staff, and Board Members for their contributions over the past year. Without your hard work, support, and prayers it would not be possible to provide services to the precious children of Bangladesh. I would like to extend a special thank you to Sukamal Biswas, Albert Mridha, and Philip Adhikary in helping me in my role with SBT from the very beginning.

The pages of this report with their pictures and stories provide only a glimpse of the hope that SBT and its partners are trying to provide the children and their families that we serve. We invite you to prayerfully consider this report, and then join us in this calling of being an advocate for children throughout Bangladesh and the world!
