Title: Founder
Korvi Rakshand founded JAAGO Foundation in a small room with only 17 children back in 2007 with a dream of breaking the cycle of poverty through quality education for the unprivileged. Soon, with immense love and affection for deprived children, Korvi put an effort to expand his organization with 1400 children studying in 8 branches of JAAGO schools all over Bangladesh. Korvi, who is considered as the pioneer of volunteerism in Bangladesh, founded Volunteer For Bangladesh that has more than 12,000 registered volunteers across Bangladesh. His work and dedication brought him various awards and recognition including International Visitor Leadership Program (IVLP) and Mosaic International Award in 2010. He was listed in the “Top 99 under 33 Influential Foreign Policy Leaders” by The Diplomatic Courier, in Washington D.C. in 2013 and one of the 10 inspirational Bangladeshis around the world by the British Bangladeshi Power & Inspiration in 2014.
