Welcome to the university of cambridge bangla society!
As Bengali students, we believe our main aim should be to raise money for charities who help the less fortunate in Bangladesh. This year we have raised £780 for a charity called Sreepur Village, a charity for destitute women and children in rural Bangladesh.
At BanglaSoc, we have a variety of events throughout the year which allows our members to both build and solidify friendships. Just this year, we held a talk and formal at Clare College to commemorate Ekushey February and a charity iftaar in which we raised £516!
BanglaSoc wants to encourage more Bengali students to pursue higher education – in particular we want to see more Bengali students here at Cambridge! Our access team deliver talks to a variety of schools and sixth forms across the UK.
Cambridge can be a stressful place! We’re here to help students, Bengali or not, settle in that tiny bit better and feel more at home away from home.
