The Jaago Foundation believe in working towards a better society—one in which every child can and has access quality education. Through access, each student served can capitalise on his or her dreams and take life to be the opportunity it is.
The first Jaago School was informally established in 2007. The journey started with only 17 students, one whiteboard and a small classroom in a Dhaka slum. Gradually, Jaago have expanded their quest of spreading the light of education, not only within Dhaka but beyond it as well. Jaago’s first digital school was built in Gazipur during 2011 and after that, they started growing to other areas as well with the hope of spreading quality education.
Jaago now have 12 schools nationwide. 8 of these are digital schools, a concept pioneered by Jaago in Bangladesh around 8 years ago. The remaining 3 Jaago schools are offline traditional schools.
