Celebrating Bengali New Year
Celebrating Bengali New Year

Celebrating the Roots, Celebrating Bengali New years

“Esho he Boishakh esho esho ….” (Welcome Boishakh, welcome) humming with the tune of this soul vibrating song tune we embrace the 1st month of Bengali Calendar. Children of JAAGO Foundation greeted Boishakh ( Bengali Month ) by arranging Cultural program designed with activities solely rooted and connected to our culture, colors and festive. Kids performed Poetry reciting, singing songs, performing cultural dances and put on traditional clothing. Children and teachers tagged in packs to make masks, traditional trays and cards for their guardians and friends.  It was a colorful day full of Joy and smiles.

 

Our Independence, Our Pride

There is a wise saying: “The best and most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen or even touched - they must be felt with the heart. “

Patriotism is something giving the same similar vibe. To plant the seed of patriotism in a child`s heart is sole the core responsibility of the family and his or her education institute. Bangladesh fought for its Independence with bravery and sacrifice; every child of this nation treasures the tale of our victory and Children of JAAGO Foundation organized and celebrated our Independence Day this year with Theatrical Acts, Rebel Poetries and Cultural Activities with the support of their Teachers marking the Day to its significance.

 

Bringing Smiles to 2200 JAAGO Children

It was a heart-warming generous gesture from our Founder and JAAGO Foundation, taking the noble initiative to gift a total of 4,400 sets of school uniforms for the JAAGO Foundation children. It was an emotional and historical moment for JAAGO and its 2,200 children as well, as this is the first time ever in JAAGO’s last 9 years journey, that each of the JAAGO’s 13 school’s children would get 2-sets of uniforms in a single year! 


JAAGO Debate Warriors

For good ideas and true innovation, we need human interaction, conflict, argument and debate. With this line of thoughtBangladesh Debate Warriors has joined forces with JAAGO Foundationwith the aim to provide debating skills to our JAAGO School children, rebuilding them in the mean while. The founder of Bangladesh Debate Warriors had a session with our senior most batch he expressed that through this constructive partnership the glorious kids of JAAGO will be provided with a podium for national and international debate. It was an interactive session where our children came across facts like how debating will reinforce their personalities, help them to boost their confidence, assist them excel in their academic fields, and open up doors for tomorrow. Following the gameplay tips, our JAAGO Warriors participated Debate Contest in National ground and brought us glory by attaining the position of Runners Up in the nationwide competition!

 

'Kids Go Coding’ | 1 Year of Glorification

The kids from Class 5 & 7 of JAAGO Rayer Bazar School have successfully completed their 1st year of computer coding classes under the "Kids Go Coding" program. To commemorate this great achievement, recently a celebration event took place at our JAAGO Foundation School computer lab room. Last one year has truly been a great learning experience for these inquisitive kids, who have got direct coding lessons on how to use basic logic and sequences, how to create animated effects, etc. from the brilliant coders of “Kids Go Coding” team. Over the last 1 year, as Kids Go Coding coordinators tell us, they have found the JAAGO Foundation school children to be very sincere and positive spirited. They were really impressed by these students' performances in the coding classes, especially by experiencing their eagerness to learn. They also highly appreciated the JAAGO School staffs for their continuous support and assistance. A total of sixty children from our School’s class 5 and 7 were taught under this amazing program designed and executed by Kids Go Coding. Our heartfelt thanks and gratitude to Kids Go Coding for supporting JAAGO on its mission to breaking the cycle of poverty through education.

 

Training the JAAGO Facilitators

A teacher is always dedicated on the path of learning. The teachers of our  Online Schooling Program were provided with mentoring and special training. The Orientation program included growth opportunities, evaluation procedures, certification procedures and personnel policies & procedures. Facilitators teaching JAAGO Children in numerous parts of Bangladesh travelled to Dhaka at JAAGO Foundation Principal Branch to unite with each other, discuss, get trained and brain storm to find out new methodologies for teaching JAAGO students. In the process they build up strong bonding among themselves, creating new threads of network and friendship. Teachers polished their motives and efficiency level through effective training by JAAGO Education Program Experts. A new rise to the oath taken to polish the future of our children coming from impoverished background, with Quality Education.

I Teach and I Learn

Reception Teachers
Reception Teachers' training

The purpose of our training is to provide teachers with an opportunity to practice various teaching strategies, guidelines, in the real classroom.

 

Induction Procedures for New Teachers

Newly hired teachers were provided mentoring and special training for their first month of employment in the online School. This training may continue for the rest of the year. The induction experience would orient, mentor, and support new teachers to enable them to perform at an effective and ever-improving level and find personal and professional satisfaction as a member of the JAAGO Online teaching group.

During the first few weeks of employment, each new teacher had to attend an orientation program by JAAGO Foundation. Topics included a JAAGO Foundation overview, professional growth opportunities, evaluation procedures, certification procedures, and personnel policies and procedures.

As we have just started the new academic session, more than 40 teachers have recruited for the new academic session. Therefore new teachers are going through the induction procedures for JAAGO Online School.

 

Reception Teachers’ training

JAAGO Foundation provides continuous briefing and mentoring through the Education Coordinator to the teachers. Apart from that, we facilitate various trainings for the teachers on need-basis. In the month of February, we have provided training for the Reception teachers. Key concepts taught include the following:

  • Reception Curriculum
  • Learning outcomes of the Reception Class
  • Teaching Strategies for the Reception Class
  • Guideline for the teachers

 

Teacher's Training at Chittagong

Active learning is a significant approach to ensure quality education. We believe in active learning where learners can always play the key role in the classroom. With more to that, this year, our Education Team arranged a teacher’s training session consisting of two days, on Active Learning where the different methods and strategies of active learning were taught. Also, this teacher’s training session helped to articulate how students become more active than a traditional class. This workshop on "Active Learning" for the teachers was held in Chittagong and we hope to see more positive outcomes from these workshops in near future.

 

Thank You

We wholeheartedly thank all our supporters for where we are now. This was only possible only because we stood by each other. Only thanking you will not suffice of what you have done for us. Therefore, we are incorporating our current project “Better Teacher, Brighter Future” with our “Free of cost School for underprivileged children of Bangladesh” project for a much greater cause. Stay with us and be a reason for the change.

Shinning Stars of Tomorrow

Celebrating Victory Day of Bangladesh
Celebrating Victory Day of Bangladesh

Celebrating the Victory Day of Bangladesh

Our kids went back to that wonderful joyous memory of that day where we won The 1971 Bangladesh Liberation War. On 16th December 2016, the celebration of Victory Day knew no bounds. Our students celebrated this day with victory songs, stage performances and art competition in JAAGO schools all over the country.

  

World Class WNBA Player`s visit to JAAGO

With the amazing support of American Center to Bangladesh, we had the pleasant visit of the  WNBA Player and Olympian gold medalist in our JAAGO Foundation Rayer Bazar School. The young students of our school and volunteers of Volunteer for Bangladesh (The Youth Wing of JAAGO Foundation) had spent a lovely time by meeting and interacting with the energetic athlete where they also took part in a session of exercise to improve fitness. Moreover, our other distinguished guests from U.S. Embassy-Dhaka were also present in this significant visit to make the day more charming for our children.

 

Trading in Stars!

The JAAGO Banani School students already engaged in a fun form of commerce to collect their favorite goodies! Donations collected from JAAGO patrons are pooled to introduce and conduct a “Class Market” where children exchange their stars for fun goodies on sale! Students are rewarded with stars for appropriate behavior and class performance. Each star is worth BDT 5 and can be used as currency to buy items at the market place! This practice is widely popular amongst the children and keeps them on their best behavior all year round!

 

Ekushey Book Fair 2016

On 16th February 2016, 30 students from our Rayerbazar and Banani School took a detailed tour of the yearlong anticipated popular Ekushey Book Fair. On this day these students enjoyed their hearts out roaming around from one book stall to another. The colorful covers of the new books, the fresh smell of the new pages and the book cover decors created endless smiles on the faces of our children. Also, our children took participation in donating old story books for the other underprivileged kids in remote areas of Bangladesh who do not have the facility of reading creative story books. Altogether, they explored a new world full of imagination where they created a pathway to wonderland of knowledge for other kids as well.

 

Thank You

We strongly thank all our supporters for being our shade throughout this journey. This was only possible only because we stood by each other. Only thanking you will not suffice of what you have done for us. That is the exact reason we are incorporating our current project “Education for Underprivileged Children” with our “Free of cost School for Underprivileged Children” project for a much greater cause. Stay with us and let’s celebrate the change, together.
