Nutritious Food For a Healthy Future

Healthy Food for Students
Healthy Food for Students

 

JAAGO implements a healthy living program to ensure that our students and their families have access to nutritious food. These children and their families cannot meet the challenge of their daily bread. Hence, providing proper nutrition for their growth is preparing them for the future.

 

Ensuring regular school enrollment and continuing attendance remains a problem across the underprivileged communities of our country. Instead of going to school, parents send their children to work outside to buy food and support their families. JAAGO School & Community Feeding Programme aimed to improve school attendance and performance while reducing hunger and food scarcity in the community. Thus, the community can be engaged with their schools for a longer time and be healthy at the same time.

 

Here at JAAGO, we provide boiled eggs, bananas, buns, biscuits, nuts, dates, guavas, apples & oranges to all students of each JAAGO School around the country. Around 4,000 JAAGO students are part of our School Feeding Program. Through the discussion regarding the daily food intake, students are conscious of eating nutritious food and living a healthy life. Parents are delighted to receive such support from our schools regularly. They are also getting aware of the nutritional requirements of their children. We also teach them mandatory dining etiquette. From washing hands with soap before meals to dumping waste materials in the bins, they know it all now.

In September, one of our partners, Thrive distributed healthy food to our students in Bandarban and their families. We are thankful for their constant support. 

Thank You Note

We would like to take the opportunity to thank you on behalf of JAAGO Foundation for your contribution to fighting poverty and achieving the right to nutrition for thousands of children in Bangladesh. Your contribution means a lot to us. The financial support from your side would help us fulfil our mission of ensuring a healthy generation for a better world. With the funds donated by you, we would transform the lives of many children and their families. We believe your kindness equips the JAAGO students to break the cycle of poverty in the best possible way.

Let's Get Girls to Unleash Their Potential

Help girls get educated
Help girls get educated

Little Mokaroma* studies in Kindergarten in JAAGO Foundation School. A few months ago, she was hit with the most devastating news of her short life; she was diagnosed with Thalassemia. However, nothing could stop Mokarama from pursuing her dreams, and she continued to excel in her studies despite her sickness through the JAAGO Foundation. 

 

Many children like Mokaroma look to be sponsored to receive the basic right to education and dream beyond their limits and break free from the shackles of poverty. However, through your sponsorship or donation, female children receive opportunities that they are not born to. Help change lives by donating and educating a girl child like Mokaroma. 

 

As you know, in the marginalised community, internet and smartphone penetration are very limited. It has not yet reached the high saturation rates of many countries. This includes thousands of students, for whom a basic internet connection is considered a luxury, let alone a computer; this alternative approach of online education is not possible. Moreover, girls are more likely to be cut off. In our society, where even boys receiving an education is not guaranteed, hoping that each and every girl will be educated is all but a pipe dream. Therefore, JAAGO has been working to break this barrier since 2007 by working towards achieving Sustainable Development Goal 4, “Quality Education”. Using the digital platform, JAAGO is taking quality education to the most rural parts of the country. All students from our 11 schools receive education digitally, under the Bangladesh Government's National Curriculum in English Version, including the 53% female students.   

 

But more girls need your support. With the sponsorships, underprivileged girls at JAAGO schools will have a greater chance of escaping poverty, raise the standard of living of their communities, and have healthier and productive lives. With proper education, they will acquire the knowledge and skills to make wise decisions and be self-sufficient.

 

Thank You Note 

We wish to express our sincerest gratitude to the wellwishers and donors of this project as they are not only giving female children the opportunity to receive quality education but also pave the way for them to bring about sustainable change within their communities, in turn supporting the nation in the future. With your donations for girl’s education, we dream about bringing a positive change in this world. We dream of a better community, a poverty-free country, a healthier nation, and a safe abode for all of our women. And your donations are definitely going to be the first step towards bringing this positive change.

COVID-19: Relief to Rural Communities

Relief Distribution In This Pandemic
Relief Distribution In This Pandemic

JAAGO Foundation was one of the active responders when COVID-19 hit Bangladesh last year. JAAGO and its youth volunteers worked together towards helping families in the communities through the relief drive.

This year in August, JAAGO Foundation continued the initiative for the underprivileged people and responded to the humanitarian crisis by providing food support. Considering the high risk of COVID, our volunteers reached out to the needy people of the most vulnerable areas of Bangladesh in the Rajshahi and Khulna districts. We started the relief drive on 7th August with the support of IPDC Finance Ltd. Our volunteers provided hundreds of relief packs in Murli Jora Mandir, Jessore Sadar and Sapura, Boalia of Rajshahi.

National Credit and Commerce Bank Ltd (NCCB) also supported JAAGO Foundation providing thousands of relief packs to underprivileged people. From 13th to 14th August, our volunteers distributed COVID relief packs to Jaypurhat, Naogaon, Magura, Satkhira, Khalispur (Khulna), Jashore, Kushtia, Rajshahi, Sirajganj, and Pabna districts.

United Commercial Bank Limited (UCB) Ltd is a socially responsible bank concerned about giving back to society. We provided COVID relief funds to thousands of families in the most deprived areas of Bangladesh, Rajshahi and Khulna, with their support.

Each of the families got 8 kgs of rice, 1 kg of flour, 2 kgs of lentils, 2 kgs of potato, 1ltr of oil, 1 kg of salt, and so on, including soaps and masks. The volunteers and the management team maintained proper hygiene and social distancing in the distribution areas.

However, people are still suffering and dealing with the economic impact the pandemic has caused. Though many corporates have come forward, we still need your support. By maintaining proper safety measures, we resumed our relief activity again to help those in need and helped them overcome a few of the challenges they faced. But they still need your help!

JAAGO Foundation has been working hard to solve problems and take required steps through various initiatives throughout the epidemic. Your assistance will be a driving factor in our efforts to work more effectively for the underprivileged. We are eternally grateful to the generous people and organisations that have assisted us in getting this far. We could not have accomplished so much without the aid of all of our supporters, partners, contributors, and, of course, volunteers who labour on the front lines to directly assist the people of our nation. We look forward to your support!
