Incorporating Feedback Culture In The Organization

GlobalGiving awarded The Feedback Fund Grant of $20,000 to JAAGO Foundation for the project “Incorporating feedback culture in the organization and beyond”. JAAGO Foundation is grateful to GlobalGiving Foundation for awarding the Feedback Fund Grant.

This project will assess the current scenario of feedback in JAAGO’s ‘Safe Haven for Rohingya Refugee Children’ project by incorporating feedback of 500 Rohingya children and 1000 parents in Unchiprang camp, Cox’s Bazar.

The following activities have been completed under the Incorporating feedback culture in the organization and beyond project. One Project inception meeting was arranged with the concerned teams for the smooth implementation of the project. One survey tool has already been identified and selected for getting the feedback from the beneficiaries. Out of four proposed content development activity, survey questionnaire for employee of organization and two separate questionnaires on the assessment of JAAGO’s ‘Safe Haven for Rohingya Refugee Children’ project for Rohingya children and their parents have already been developed by the project implementation team.The project team is currently working to develop the content for the workshop and the script of the awareness video. The proposed workshop will aim to motivate employees to assess their performance as well as their teams in a constructive manner. The awareness video will be shared in JAAGO’s volunteer network for youth’s better understanding on the importance of feedback. Through this project, JAAGO aims to sustain the ‘Safe Haven for Rohingya Refugee Children’ project in the coming months.

JAAGO is thankful to GlobalGiving for supporting such unique yet necessary organizational development strategy through this funding. 

Unlock The Opportunities For Brighter Future

Recently, The Government of Bangladesh (GoB) and the Education Sector (ES) partners have decided to provide the children with basic education. A ‘Learning Competency Framework and Approach’ (LCFA) has been developed. In this context, ES conducted a baseline assessment to find the LCFA levels the children can be identified with we call it ASER-PLUS Assessment tools.

The ASER-PLUS is a modified version of the ASER assessment (also called the Annual Status of Education Report), a literacy and numeracy tool used in other countries such as India to measure students’ literacy and numeracy levels at the household level and school level.

Around 500 students (as of April 2019) ages 6-14 in our Safe Haven participated in the assessment. Host community teachers and refugee facilitators of the Safe Haven administered assessments to students after participating in training on the ASER-PLUS tool. The purpose of the assessment is to (I-IV) level children following LCFA measures. The next step will be to develop teaching-learning materials (TLMs) aligned to LCFA levels I–IV.

According to the assessment:

Myanmar Language: 70% of the children’s knowledge of Myanmar language is in level I, 19% in level II and some insignificant numbers in levels III and IV. This leads to an understanding that nearly one-third of the children (32%) is in the ‘beginner’ stage and a little over one third (38%) can read letters only. Very few students can read words & paragraphs and can comprehend.

Mathematics: Nearly half of the children (49%) are in LCFA level I and 42% in level II. Nearly one-fourth of the total children are in the ‘beginner’ stage. A rather insignificant number of children (12%) can read numbers up to 99. However, 19% can do addition and 12% can do the subtraction.

English: 33% of the children are in ‘beginner’ stage, 28% can recognize English alphabets in ‘small’ letters, 29% can read words and only 5% can comprehend the meaning of the text they read. On the other side, a large number of the children (73%)’s knowledge of English is in level I and 19% in level II.

So, after completing the assessment we have leveled students according to performance on the assessment (Level I-IV). Now we are preparing and using teaching and learning materials tailored to those levels and endorsed by the Education Sector. We are gradually conducting subject-based training for teachers to align with the proposed-LCFA framework in Math, English, Science, and Myanmar Language topics. We have also clustered learning facilities according to levels and shift daily timetable to allow for increasing teaching and learning time.

Overcoming The Real Horrors For A Rohingya Child

Khairul Amin, a twelve year old young boy, was facing the typical struggles of a student even a year ago. Khairul and his friends believed that nothing was more difficult than the third grade courses for Burmese, English, Arabic, Urdu and Quran, and yet they came to school every day to spend time with each other. For this group of friends, their bond was more powerful than the scolding of the teachers. Little did they know that their cherished friendship would run its course and their lives would be turned upside down.

One day last year, Khairul went home and found out the armies were conducting inspections at his house. Before Khairul could comprehend why the officers were beating up his father, and throwing his sister on the floor as she screamed, Khairul’s uncle ushered him out of the house and they fled for Bangladesh in September 2017.

After the displacement, Khairul would wake up every night screaming as the horrors of that night played before his eyes. His family reached out to Safe Haven to help him overcome his psychological state in the hopes that he would interact like a child again. After four months of being at Safe Haven Project, Khairul is showing signs of recovery. During the evening, he likes to ‘’play with his neighbors, enjoys the current school activities and is enthusiastic to continue studying here. At the Safe Haven camp, Khairul is one of the first to arrive every morning and he waits by the entrance for his new friends with great excitement, just as he used to a year ago.
