Bringing Smiles on Million's Through Education

Bringing Smile on Millions through Education

Education is a basic human right, but for a developing country like Bangladesh, we need to pay more attention on female education in particular. It is a very common exercise in rural households not to send their young daughters to schools as they believe females are born to solely run households or to work as a maid for earnings. To have such a belief in the year of 2019 is alarming and that is why the education system in our country is in dire need of definite change. It is highly crucial to bring up young girls in our country as educated women for a better nation. Due to receiving education, these young girls will have some set of skills which can act as a base of attaining specialized skills in future. When women finally decide to start a family, they are more likely to recognize the importance of education and ensure education for their children as well. Battling from the poverty is a dream of every underprivileged children and education is the way that can turn this dream into something big. Today, JAAGO foundation is trying to remove the cycle of poverty by providing the quality education with the help of your love and support.

 

Empowering Nations Better Half to Dream Big

JAAGO Foundation encourages the girls of our nation to stand up and pursue for education to make their life easy and valuable. Today, the families of our female students dream of educating their daughters and encourage them to dream big. JAAGO Foundation focuses not only boy’s education but also we encourage the young girls to go school so that these underprivileged girls can dream to achieve the highest limit of the sky. At present, there are more than 60% female students are attending JAAGO school. Only Education can help these young girls to be someone they never imaged.


Inspirational Story of Lamia

Twelve-year-old Lamia clenched her teeth, anticipating her next pang of hunger. On days like this, when her father’s asthma acted up and he did not have the strength to pull his rickshaw, they were forced to drink water all day and maybe one biscuit. She did not blame her father though. She focused instead on her studies, letting her hunger fuel her motivation. She was glad to be a part of the JAAGO School. It was easier to ignore the rumblings of her stomach when she’s busy accumulating knowledge. 10 years later Lamia has passed the SSC exam with flying colors. She wants to continue to study and become an Architect.

Thank You

New Year Begins with New Dreams & Promises

Rohingya Refugee crisis is known as one of the biggest humanitarian crisis in recent years, where hundreds of thousands of Rohingya had fled their home and taken shelter in Bangladesh. As a part of emergency response, JAAGO Foundation had started a Rohingya Refugee Project, known as Safe Haven for Rohingya Refugee Children on the beginning of 2018. It has been a year since then and we have been catering 500 displaced children by providing reliefs and helping with their trauma management. This has been only being possible with your act of generosity from donors like you. In the beginning of new year, we have promised to develop the curriculum of Safe Haven facility in order to improve the life quality of the children of Safe Haven.

 

Teaching and Learning, Leads to Shining

JAAGO Foundation has a R&D team with expert personnel, who has been continuously figuring ways of developing contents and improve learning experience.  Here, we have developed the Learning Competency framework for education in the emergency situation and we are following our framework to cater to these children so that they can develop their social, emotional, skill-based competency. Now, most of the children can read and write a simple word in English.

 

Wiping Trauma & Bringing Smiles on Innocents

Every week our SHP professional caregivers conduct trauma management session with these traumatized children. These sessions helped these Rohingya children to overcome the trauma from what they have faced in Myanmar. Now These Rohingya children forgot their past and not afraid to laugh and smile from their heart.

 

Color That Brings Happiness

At Safe Haven we introducedcolor therapy which helps to recover the trauma that these children have faced in Myanmar. Coloring can be highly effective for traumatized children. These children use colors to express their experience and feelings. Some children are extraordinary and they come up with very strong picture with colors.

Starting of a New Year with New Faces and Dreams

JAAGO Foundation started the new year of 2019 with new faces, aiming to shape new dreams. We are now blooming and thriving with growing numbers, shaping the dreams of thousands by giving them a taste of mainstream education to the community to whom, education is a luxury which they can not afford. We started the journey with a vision of empowering education with a room, a white board and only 17 students in a slum. Today, standing on the verge of our 12 years journey, we have 3500 students in 12 districts across Bangladesh.

Here at JAAGO, we provide education in Governments English version curriculum following an innovative approach. Each year, we recruit 500 students in our schools where each branch admits 40 students in Reception grade only. To make sure the best usage of your donation, we follow a specific process for admission. During the procedure, we asses more than 2000 – 2500 application for selecting best 40 by intense screening process. We consider their family background, financial status, interest towards continuing studies, residing history in the School area and many more. These procedures are conducted because we want to nourish a student till their graduation and ensure 0% dropouts.

This year, a number of total 500 students joined us with a dream of a better future through education. With your contribution, we want to change these students course of future with their family’s condition as well. After years of hardships and struggles, now we can say the parents are more willing to send their kids to school. The scenario had changed a lot than it was in 2007. Submission of around 3000 applications for only 40 seats clearly showcases that scenario in the same community. This is something we are proud of and thanks for all your supports and love towards these economically disadvantaged children for helping them with quality education.

 

Boosting Confidence with PEC Success: Passing with Flying Colours

The year of 2019 started with the glorious light and good luck for us. Students who have had started their journey with us from reception grade, sat for PEC Examination (Primary Education Completion exam) which is a Bangladesh Government’s certified examination while promoting from Grade 5 to Grade 6.

Students of JAAGO had attained 100% passing rate, keeping their marks with stunning results. The result of the PEC has been published in the last week December, 2018. This has been surely an achievement for the students who faced board exam for the first time. And it has been an inspiration to beginning the New Year. We are really happy to share with our supporters that a number of total 58 students passed with flying colors. We would like to express our heartiest gratitude towards all the supporter of JAAGO, who has been continuously supporting these students to reach the landmark of PEC.

 

Quality Teaching Starts With Quality Teachers

JAAGO believes in working with quality education rather than providing education in quantitative manner. Thus we have only 3500 students in last 12 years of journey. To ensure quality, we need to work on the core of the education program. Therefore, we organize teachers training in different branches of JAAGO in different intervals.

Recently, we arranged a fruitful workshop in one of our schools. Here, LMHC (Licensed Mental Health Counsel) from USA joined us, taken workshop about improving teaching skills and classroom management. It was an interactive and inclusive session where below topics were covered:

1. The loving and struggling part of teaching (Individual opinion sharing)

2. Classroom Management

3. Anger Management

4. Time Management

5. Conflict Resolution

There is something which has been faced by any teachers while taking courses. They discussed different opportunity, obstacles and challenges from different perspective and exchanged suggestion to improve the classroom experience. JAAGO is welcoming and open towards these kinds of third party involvements. This enables us to maintain the quality of teaching and learning.

 

Bringing The Best of Students: Emphasizing on Extra Curricular Activities

Each year new enrolled students of JAAGO fears to have dreams because of their extreme background of poverty. However, once they are settled after few days, JAAGO nurture these young stars in a way which shapes them into confident human beings who are confident, believes they can change their lives as well their families. Now, at the starting of year 2019 journey, our student can proudly say JAAGO has given them hope of a better future while they excel at public examination and extra-curricular activities.

Last year it was a golden success for us, as JAAGO Foundation became jointly Runners-up in an inter-school Group Debate Competition called “1st International Education, Career & Cultural Champions Trophy Bangladesh 2018 on Global Tourism”. Asif Bhuiya | Grade 6 represented JAAGO School and his success will definitely inspire rest of the students.

In 2018, our children participated in a Public Speaking Competition and Reading Competition, organized by JAAGO Foundation. Along with mainstream education, we believe in developing the students with self-confidence, ability to improve self-representation and ability to use their creative minds. Thus we organize these kinds of extra-curricular activities to bring the best out of the students of JAAGO.

 

Manifesting the feeling of Patriotism: Remembering The Liberation War

In the map of the World, Bangladesh has a very powerful and tragic history behind its liberation. We are the only nation fought for our mother tongue, the language of Bangla. Passing on the memory and history of Liberation, we try to give proper knowledge to our students from very early stage of their life. This year our 2nd Grade students learnt about our liberation and presented via drama based on the story. These children learnt it from our history books so that they can feel the meaning of victory on Liberation war in 1971. An Impeccable drama named " A Golden Leaf of Liberation War” has been played by the 2nd Grade students which inspired them to know more closely about Liberation War of Bangladesh.

 

Thank you Note

2018 looked a lot brighter because of your support! We cannot express the impact that has on all of us here at JAAGO Foundation. Words are sometimes so inadequate for your love and care. We thank you for all you have done for JAAGO Foundation, and we are looking forward for your kind support and endless love for 2019.
