JAAGO Foundation is a youth based non-profit organization based in Bangladesh, with functioning volunteer liaison branches in seven countries: Australia, Canada, Denmark, Malaysia, Qatar, USA and UK. JAAGO Foundation initiated with a free-of-cost international standard on-room school for slum children in Bangladesh in 2008. Today, JAAGO Foundation has three fully functioning schools all over Dhaka with 600 students, two major women empowerment projects, a powerful nationwide volunteer platform, and a new school in the making in the port city of Chittagong. We have many volunteers all over the world who selflessly dedicate their time and energy to the betterment of the poor and underprivileged population of Bangladesh through the education of their children.
JAAGO AIM JAAGO aims to bring about substantial improvement in the lives of disadvantaged people with special emphasis on their literacy and nourishment.
JAAGO works to provide international standard education to the impoverished children from families that have an average daily income below the International Indicator of Poverty (an income below 2 USD per day). This is done through a Free-of-Cost School with an international standard education curriculum.
JAAGO realizes that it is not possible to expect sustainable growth and self-reliance, without taking care of the emotional and physical development of all the stakeholders. As a result, various other programs have been established gradually to ensure the continuous growth of the community physically and mentally. 'Healthy Living', 'First Aid Center' and 'Call for Hygiene' are just some of the examples of such programs.
JAAGO MISSION JAAGO looks to create a better society for the next generation, which is free of exploitation, discrimination and violence, and supports the achievement of its highest potential.
No organization can succeed without focusing on its future existence. JAAGO is similarly focused not only on its current success but also on maintaining long-term sustainability. In doing so, the foundation concentrates on expanding its operations, not only in physical presence but also in program variation. JAAGO increases its family, by adding one new class each year.
In the long-run, JAAGO Foundation intends to have a fully operational branch in every district of Bangladesh. JAAGO wishes to give as many children as possible the opportunity to break free of the cycle of poverty.
For only £6000 we can help build the new school in Chittagong and as UCL is a educational institution is seemed perfect to help build a school.
