A Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) was recently signed between United World College (UWC) and JAAGO, which states Secondary School Certificate (SSC) graduates of JAAGO will have the opportunity to study at UWC. The MoU was signed in Dhaka by Raquib Md Fakhrul, President, UWC Society of Bangladesh and Korvi Rakshand, Founder, JAAGO Foundation in presence of Khadija Afzal, Vice President, UWC and Ayesha Dada, General Secretary, UWC and other higher officials of JAAGO. Korvi Rakshand mentioned, “These children who came from an underprivileged background have been given the innate power to shape their lives and when they return, it is our hope that they become responsible citizens of the nation and give back to the society.”
The partnership will guarantee an efficient exchange of resources in order to achieve greatness in the near future. Based on the needs of JAAGO students and the selection process of the National Committee in Bangladesh, UWC will provide up to 100% scholarship to students who are between ages 16 to 18 for placement at one of the UWC campuses around the world. The students are going to start in the September 2019 academic year. UWC represents a group of 17 international schools and colleges, around 155 national committees and a series of short educational programs. Students from various countries, race, background, ethnicity and cultural dynamics come together to one place to partake in a variety of academic, educational and extracurricular activities. The end goal of such a unique educational institution is to inspire its students to create a more peaceful and sustainable future. JAAGO Foundation will send 4 of their students to UWC National Committee of Bangladesh for going through the assessment process for a brighter tomorrow.
