About Us

Thanapara Village is located in the northwestern part of Bangladesh on the riverbank of Padma (Ganges).

 In assistance with The swallows in Lund 1973, Handicraft program was started for the war affected women of the village and  school was also started for the poor children. The Swallows, Sweden, funded both of these programs. In 1985, The Village Development Program was started to further develop the existing programs and to find ways to broaden program support activities for the mostly women residents of the village.
