In Bangladesh, 30 percent of the overall population live in poverty despite achieving lower-middle income country status in 2016. Lack of quality education has been identified as one of the primary reasons which prevents poverty stricken families to opt for opportunities of growth and development. In this case, underprivileged children are the worst sufferers as without proper education they fail to realize their full potential and unable to contribute to the national development process.


The goal of this project is to tap into the underlying issues of Bangladesh's education sector which are making the country fall short in the global competition. By focusing on quality of the education in rural parts of Bangladesh, children's health and nutrition, communication skills in English and adeptness with technology; the project is empowering 2500 underprivileged children living in remote areas as Global Citizens.

Long-Term Impact

JAAGO believes that education and ICT create a level playing field for everyone regardless of gender, class, ethnicity, location, religious and sexual orientation. With 2500 students and approximately 7500 indirect beneficiaries from poverty stricken background, this project is working towards helping the most underprivileged from the clutches of poverty by integrating education with ICT.
