JAAGO Foundation is a non-profit organization that aims to provide quality education to the most marginalized children in Bangladesh. Currently the organization runs 8 schools and provides free schooling to 1400 students with 74 teachers. As part of our policy to ensure standard education and best exposures as that of advantaged children, JAAGO has made a comprehensive work plan for developing and retaining skilled and talented teachers in JAAGO Foundation schools.
What is the issue, problem, or challenge?
Teachers are the single most important factor exerting the most lasting impression in shaping a child's mind, intelligence and life trajectory. Particularly at the elementary level, direct interaction between teachers and students is deemed as an essential dynamic for teaching learning process. Retaining good teachers has hence been determined as a priority for providing quality education to JAAGO Foundation schools.
How will this project solve this problem?
As stated this project will provide incentives for the talented graduates to teach at primary level through raising their pay scale and providing trainings and scope for career progression. Teachers are leaders and this project is aimed at developing leaders who would excel through their contribution to the most underprivileged segment of the society as well as to the nation.
Potential Long Term Impact
Increased remuneration and other incentives will directly affect the student-teacher relationship and improve learning environment for the students. In the long run, quality teachers will not only improve their test scores but also help improve their socio-economic status, develop them into skilled human resources and break the vicious cycle of poverty.

Every microproject is intended to use the donations it receives in accordance with its stated description; however, it is important to provide project leaders with the flexibility to maximize the potential benefit from the donations they receive. This means that your donation may be used as a part of the main project that supports this microproject, specifically Free-of-cost School for Underprivileged Children. In this event, the project leader is required to post an update to the microproject detailing the results and reasons behind this change.
