AT the age of 21 in 2007, Korvi Rakshand was expected to take over the family business in Bangladesh upon completion of his education at University College, London. On his return to Dhaka, Korvi decided, however, to use his education and skills to create change for the impoverished children in Bangladesh. He therefore founded Jaago with a vision to eliminate poverty through education. The work started with 17 children in a small tin shed in Dhaka. The only furniture was a blackboard and a piece of carpet.Today, the Jaago Foundation supports the education of 3,000 children in 12 locations across Bangladesh. Most of the children enrolled in the school are from families whose average daily income is below the international indicator of poverty i.e. less than US$1.
