Siam, a young boy who grew up in the slums of Bangladesh has defied all odds when he received a fully funded scholarship to one of the most renowned international schools, United World College in the US. Siam is just one of the thousands of children that JAAGO Foundation has supported through their ‘Free Of Cost School’ Program. This program aims to grant underprivileged children in Bangladesh access to quality education, with the hope that education can be used as a weapon to break through the poverty cycle, in turn allowing for these families to create better lives for themselves.
“I have come so far today with the love and support of all well-wishers and sponsor parents; if more people come together to help the underprivileged children of JAAGO, a nation free of poverty will become a reality one day” –Siam

The ‘Free of Cost School’ Program was the solution for Siam as well as the solution for thousands of others. As of now the program supports 3,500 children across 12 schools in Bangladesh, giving them the means to dream for a better life for themselves. This GivingTuesday, every donation made for this cause will help these underprivileged children in many ways.

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.
