JAAGO focuses on creating an equitable world regardless of ethnicity, location, religious & sexual orientation by empowering the most marginalized. It believes education is the strongest weapon to break the cycle of poverty which can open opportunities for income, growth and sustainable development. With this belief, we are running Free of Cost School for 3000 underprivileged children in 12 schools across Bangladesh. As we enroll 500 students yearly, the number of students going to be 3500 in 2019.
In Bangladesh, 30 percent of the overall population live in poverty despite achieving lower-middle income country status in 2016. Lack of quality education has been identified as one of the primary reasons which prevents poverty stricken families to opt for opportunities of growth and development. In this case, underprivileged children are the worst sufferers as without proper education they fail to realize their full potential and unable to contribute to the national development process.
The goal of this project is to tap into the underlying issues of Bangladesh’s education sector which are making the country fall short in the global competition. By focusing on quality of the education in rural parts of Bangladesh, children’s health and nutrition, communication skills in English and adeptness with technology; the project is empowering 3000 underprivileged children living in remote areas as Global Citizens.
JAAGO believes that education and ICT create a level playing field for everyone regardless of gender, class, ethnicity, location, religious and sexual orientation. With 3000 students and approximately 15,000 indirect beneficiaries from poverty-stricken background, this project is working towards helping the most underprivileged from the clutches of poverty by integrating education with ICT.

What is the process by which JAAGO intends to achieve its long-term goal?
Whilst JAAGO’s primary focus is on education, we also work on various support projects that aim to empower women and increase employment opportunities for impoverished communities within Bangladesh. By maintaining a balance of education and skill enhancement for the children, coupled with providing a means to produce income for the family, JAAGO can ensure that the children are able to become fully educated.
On the other hand, being the pioneer in proving the youth a voice and a platform through its youth wing “Volunteer for Bangladesh” JAAGO is now reallocating skills and resources to foster self-reliance and growth in every citizen.
This balance will ultimately allow for the accomplishment of the JAAGO goal – to break the cycle of poverty through education and rebuilding our nation.
