Summary

This project will help expand JAAGO Foundation's free-of-cost English medium school, which run exclusively for the underprivileged children. All of the 1800 students currently studying in the 13 schools coming from incredibly disadvantaged families. These children would have never got the opportunity of quality education had JAAGO not taken this initiative. The curse of illiteracy and poverty force these kids to become child laborers, which JAAGO is trying to prevent through this initiative.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

Bangladesh, being a third world developing country, suffers from chronic poverty and illiteracy. The poorest people, who mostly live in the slum areas, cannot find enough employment opportunities to sustain their families, let alone send their children to schools. Hence, these kids grow up to be child laborers and engage in unsavory professions from a very early age. Lack of proper education is the reason their families cannot get out of this cycle of poverty.

How will this project solve this problem?

The ultimate goal of this project is to provide free of cost education of international standard to these destitute children, so that they can eventually extricate themselves from the clutches of poverty. The project will also focus on their emotional and physical development by taking care of issues such as their nutrition, hygiene and health care, so that these kids are able to grow up and make a place for themselves in the world as global citizens.

Potential Long Term Impact

Presently, the school facilitates 1800 children, which will be increased the beneficiary to be 2400 in 13 schools. The long term goal is to set up at least one school in each of the 64 districts throughout Bangladesh. Our plan is to start educating the kids from the age of 4-5 and give them at least 12-14 years of international standard education along with vocational training.
