ICT Minister Visits Online School
On the 24th June, 2015, Information & Communication Technology Minister Zunaid Ahmed Palak graced JAAGO with his presence and spent some quality time with the children of our Rayerbazar School. Not only did he come to see the students, he brought a laptop for the computer lab and 2 very interesting reads for the library. The graphics novel illustrates the biography of Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman. The other is an amusing collection of rhymes written by a nine year old boy! Mr. Palak was so greatly moved by JAAGO's education program that he himself became the sponsor parent to a JAAGO child. During his visit he has spent some quality time with the teachers and students. Where he motivated our teacher for their continuous effort to build the nation’s future.
