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.

Bringing Smile on The Faces of Innocence - Fighting Against Malnutrition

Bringing Smile On The Face of Innocence...
Bringing Smile On The Face of Innocence...

JAAGO has gradually grown as an organization with the support from individuals like you and helped us continue this great initiative of eliminating poverty by quality education since 2007. Today, on the verge of our 12 years journey we have made a small effort to share our journey with you and let you be our judge. Till date, we have 3500 students from 12 districts of Bangladesh that have come from an economically disadvantaged background. JAAGO realized in Bangladesh, 30% of the overall population lives under the poverty line. In such a scenario, lack of proper food and under-nutrition in children has poor mental development and school achievements as well as behavioral abnormalities. Without the optimum health, children fail to discover their full potential and are unable to perform their best. Through “Feed the Children” project, 3500 underprivileged children at JAAGO School from the rural and marginalized communities of Bangladesh will be enriched with proper food and nutrition. Thus, each of them will be given the opportunity to explore through their maximum abilities.

 

The Burden of Insufficient Capacity of Proper Nutrition is Unacceptably High.

Malnutrition is a universal issue that no one in the world can afford to overlook. By addressing issues like malnutrition, JAAGO School will make sure that children are able to perform their best. Currently, JAAGO provides nutrition boost for only two days in a week which is not sufficient enough for growing children. Without proper nutrition, these children cannot reach their maximum abilities. Hence, the optimum health, children fail to discover their full potential and are unable to perform their best at school.

 

JAAGO Tries To Be A Better Equipped To End Malnutrition

Today, JAAGO provides nutrition to 500 children; however, more than 3000 children are still in need of nutrition. With the help of your support, JAAGO will able to provide nutritious food like egg, milk, banana and nutrition supplements to these 3500 children.

Since due to the lack of fund, we cannot provide nutrition food to 3500 students. Recently, Thrive which is an individual organization collaborating with JAAGO and supports our children. They are supporting 500 JAAGO students with Nutrition by providing foods twice a week.We are grateful that you came up to us to help and support these children. Your donation counts and JAAGO tries to provide food to other 3000 students.

 

Sharing Happiness with JAAGO Children

There are many well-wishers of these children who celebrate their important days with these children by spending the whole day with academic fun activities, provide good food and wishing these children for their good health and future. These celebrations happen only a few times in a year. Providing good food to these children on a daily basis is very challenging for JAAGO Foundation. Our well-wishers contribution on giving the right nutrition will provide them not only sustenance but also an opportunity for having nutrition boost on this growing stage of their life. Thus it will affect not only children's physical growth and health but also their psycho-social and emotional development. Moreover, they will be able to get the best extract from given education.

 

Thank You Note

Thank you for giving JAAGO Foundation and other children a chance at a brighter future! We are so grateful for your incredible support. We are grateful to individuals, corporate, donors and supporters for their generous support on “Feed the Children” project.

We requests to all our well-wishers to continue their love and support by providing their irreplaceable support to this cause, we can ensure each child can overcome malnutrition with the help of JAAGO’s Feed the Children project.

The sustainability and progression of all regions depends on the success of women across the globe. Education is the backbone for any nation and to cope up with the current World, it is very important to equip the better half with education as more than half of the population is women.

Since 2007, JAAGO has gradually grown as an organization with the support from individuals like you and helped us continue this great initiative of eliminating poverty by quality education. Today, on the verge of our 12th year journey we have made a small effort to share our journey with you and let you be our judge. Till date, we have 3500 students in 12 districts of the country who had came from an economically disadvantaged background. We are in a mission of eradicating poverty by free of cost quality education and we realized the importance of equipping the better half of nation as well with quality education. Thus, among all of the students we have, more that 51% of the students are female, keeping their marks and promisingly moving forward to chase their dreams.

 

Female Students Keeping Their Marks in PEC

This was an awareness workshop that taught the parents and students about eliminating the early child marriage from the society. We believe female have the potential to shine and let them to conquer the world, thus we welcome this kind of initiatives.

Every year, we organize class party where JAAGO kids are very enthusiastic to organize and host the program. Most of the kids who manages the program are female and they take the leadership on organizing, managing and to create a fun environment and entertaining for everyone. These are small initiative that helps equipping the women with the quality of organizing and leadership.
