On May 31, an inauguration ceremony was held at JAAGO Foundation Rangpur School to celebrate the opening of a new classroom. IDLC supported the expansion of the Rangpur branch of JAAGO Foundation School by building one classroom to enhance the school's facilities necessary for education. The expansion will accommodate 75 students per day which is 1,650 students per month (22 days). This approach was dedicated towards the enhancement of facilities for education provided to children living in rural areas who will be able to study in classrooms in a set up similar to that of the urban environment.
To celebrate this partnership an Art competition was organized for 40 students from the second grade to encourage a healthy and positive competitive environment on the day. Later the students and officials of both organizations had Iftar together in observance of the spirit of Ramadan.
Korvi Rakshand, Founder, JAAGO Foundation said “It is my belief that every child in Bangladesh is worthy of receiving equal opportunities in education. Let us all come together and pledge that we will not only try to create a better future for our own child, but for all the underprivileged children, to the best of our abilities. These children are the future leaders of our nation.” JAAGO Foundation runs 12 schools nationwide with 3,000 students.
Jane Alam Romel, Group Chief Marketing Officer of IDLC Finance Limited said, “Good habits developed by the youth form the future characteristics of a country. The initiation of learning these habits starts from school classrooms. As a highly engaging and responsible brand, we plan to participate as much as possible through the learning stage of the future generation”.
This initiative was taken as a part of IDLC’s one-of-a-kind CSR platform “Khushir Kheya”.
