“My family had a beautiful house which had some land, livestock and a beautiful pond”, says a ten-year-old Rohingya child. His family left all this behind and rebuilt their lives in a refugee camp far from home. At the Safe Haven project by JAAGO Foundation, this is the first time he has received any education and training since his family fled to Bangladesh. Before the pandemic, he used to play with his friends in the play zone and learn their lessons together. He also enjoyed and learned a lot from the personal protection activities and proper hygiene lessons.  

 

Since 2018, JAAGO has supported 500 Rohingya refugee children in the Kutupalong refugee camp by boosting trauma management, cognitive understanding, social skills development, and conflict resolution while ensuring personal protection and proper hygiene. 

 

As the Rohingya population continues to face uncertainty and strived to stay safe and healthy during the pandemic, your contribution fueled us to support them with ongoing emergency care. Thank you for your generosity. Your contribution made it possible for us to help the most vulnerable children in Bangladesh

 

After a long and fruitful journey, we have decided to shift the "Safe Haven for Rohingya Refugee Children" beneficiaries and make it a part of our Free-of-cost School for Underprivileged Children project where we focus on expending all our efforts on educating all children. Thank you for staying with us in this journey! We hope that you keep helping all children in the future as well and making their lives wonderful.

Dear all,

Thanks to your generosity, over 500 vulnerable Rohingya children received shelter, food and education this year. On their behalf, thank you all for your support. Your contribution made it possible for us to help the most vulnerable children in Bangladesh. 

We’re reaching out to you because you’ve already demonstrated compassion for the Rohingya children. Would you be willing to make a special year-end contribution to keep supporting these children in need?

Since 2018, JAAGO has supported children in the Kutupalong refugee camp by boosting trauma management, cognitive understanding, social skills development, and conflict resolution while ensuring personal protection and proper hygiene. 


As the Rohingya population continues to face uncertainty and strives to stay safe and healthy during the pandemic, your contribution fuels us to support them with ongoing emergency care. Thank you for your generosity. 

Let’s get united again. With your support, we can impact the Rohingya community in a lasting way.

We are very grateful to the donors of this project for supporting the young minds to give them a better future. We have come a long way, but there is still a lot to do. This journey couldn't have been possible without our patrons, NGO partners, corporates, donors, and well-wishers who have been our companions in the path of fulfilling this dream. Thank you for your generous support of our Safe Haven Project, which has been able to put a smile on the faces of 500 Rohingya children. We would love to express our appreciation on behalf of them.

Help Refugee Children Get Education
Help Refugee Children Get Education

Education is a privilege everyone deserves, regardless of nationality, race, ethnicity, or religion. That is exactly what the JAAGO Foundation aims to do all across the country. JAAGO’s Safe Haven Project for Rohingya children targets to help 500 distressed children through better education facilities, trauma management, emotional healing, and development.

 

These Rohingya refugees faced chaos and suffering, being forced to flee from their own country to Bangladesh, leaving everything they knew behind. Their identities were lost as they settled down in a different place, different country, with unknown people. Nothing remained of their past lives except for haunting memories. Still, flickers of hope were reignited once more when they got the opportunity to educate their children and help them overcome their troubles- through the Safe Haven Project. 

 

At Chitttagong’s Kutupalong Refugee Camp, hundreds of small children have post-traumatic stress disorder after having to experience extreme violence and atrocity at a very young age. They are victims of neglect, abuse, and trauma that has emotionally and physically scarred them severely. To help them overcome these battles, the Safe Haven Project launched several initiatives to support them in healing quicker. 

 

The Safe Haven Project provided them aid to conquer their mental and physical difficulties and improve their lives through better hygiene, protection, nutrition, care, love, and clear communication with professionals.  For them, it was a prospect of a brighter future, the defeat of the battles of their past, and the freedom to dream. With the help of the project and our volunteers, these inspiring and determined children have finally found a safe sanctuary where they could dare to dream.

 

With daily activities, games, learning courses, and interactive sessions, the young children got a chance for their well-deserved education and an experience of how everyday life feels like. These subjugated people have been provided with better medical facilities, food distribution, protection, and education and are gradually improving. The greatest gift for JAAGO Foundation is seeing the bright smiles of the people who have suffered for so long.

 

Although all the learning centres are closed right now, the Sesame Street Organization has taken the initiative to provide us with various posters to display on the centres’ walls to raise awareness of the situation at hand. This content will allow children to have an exciting and visual learning experience about the Coronavirus and create COVID awareness among them. 

 

Today we see ourselves standing in a place where everyone’s lives have changed drastically, and the future remains uncertain, especially for the Rohingya refugees. 

They are now faced with another severe crisis that threatens to crush them again- COVID-19. As the global pandemic is raging on, the second wave of COVID-19 in Bangladesh remains a national concern. Consequently, due to the overcrowding situation at the camp and the threat of the virus spreading, the learning centres have been closed since the beginning of the pandemic, with food distribution and medical services being the only facilities available. Nevertheless, we have remained in contact with the refugees and our students to ensure that they are safe and healthy in the midst of this hardship.

 

Throughout our journey with the Safe Haven Project, we have been tirelessly supported by various organisations and individuals. We believe that we can soon get back with our students to start teaching them again. Today, we hope that you can also help us by contributing to this cause for the better future of the Rohingya refugees who have struggled so much but have never given up.

Since their arrival in Bangladesh, Rohingya refugees faced new challenges – floods, landslides, severe storms and now, they are fighting against the COVID-19 pandemic. 


“My family had a beautiful house which had some land, livestock and a beautiful pond”
, says ten-year-old Raja*. His family left all this behind and rebuilt their lives in a refugee camp far from home. At the Safe Haven project by JAAGO Foundation, this is the first time he has received any education and training since his family fled to Bangladesh. Before the pandemic, Raja used to play with his friends in the play zone and learn their lessons together. He also enjoyed and learned a lot from the personal protection activities and proper hygiene lessons.     


But since the beginning of the Coronavirus pandemic, all the learning centres were closed. We had to suspend all the activities except food distribution and medical facilities. However, we have been in touch with our students and ensured everyone is safe and staying in their house. 

 

This year, we were making preparations to open our Learning Centers, but we had to stop everything again due to the second wave of the pandemic, as we couldn't; risk the lives of these beautiful children. But we are tracking our students and their well-being through our Rohingya volunteers. They are helping us as much as they can.   

 

The COVID-19 pandemic has brought a new threat to these overcrowded conditions. With your support, we are trying to ensure that all Rohingya children are supported with the holistic care needed to return them to a sense of normalcy and ensure that they can thrive.

Education for Everyone
Education for Everyone

At the beginning of 2018, JAAGO introduced the Safe Haven project where it helped to support 500 traumatized Rohingya children physically and mentally by providing them with a safe space where they can be engaged in regular childhood social experiences, learning, and emotional healing.

 

Since the beginning of the Coronavirus pandemic, all the learning centers were closed. All the activities were suspended except food distribution and medical facilities. But we have been in touch with our students and made sure everyone is safe and staying in their house. We started collecting data and making a plan to implement Telephone education in the camp.

 

Our government has already enabled a 3G/4G network there. So now we are planning to introduce an online teaching-learning process over there after getting approval from RRRC. This process is safe, cost-effective, easy to implement, and has a great monitoring system developed by JAAGO. But in order to introduce this interactive, blended online teaching-learning process over the camp, we need to digitize our learning centers first. 

 

Currently, our Project Officer is getting Master Training in Online teaching-learning process and assessment. Later the Project Officer will train our teachers on online modality. And we are still in communication on how we can start the teaching-learning process again in the camp.

 

This journey to provide Rohingya children with a safe abode couldn't have been possible without our NGO partners, corporates, donors, and well-wishers who have been our companions in the path of fulfilling this dream. Thank you for your generous support and for putting a smile on the faces of 500 Rohingya children. We would love to express our appreciation on behalf of them. Our current activities still require a lot of support and we are on the way to developing the project even better. So we sincerely request our well-wishers and donors to keep supporting us. Your help and support have always inspired us to move forward and do better.
