Our programs

What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

Education for slum children

Agami provides education up to the 10th grade for children living in the slums of Dhaka. Most of the students hail from families of rickshaw pullers and garment workers. The parents of these students cannot pay for their food, let alone education. As a result these children are forced to work or live on the streets. Agami's program offers incentive for these children to stay off the street and go to school by providing lunch, school supplies, text books and school uniforms.  

Impact:
As a result of Agami's contribution, 1000s of slum children are receiving education. 24 students graduated last year
and have gone to local high schools. This school added two new classes due to increasing interest from slum kids to attend school.

Population(s) Served
Economically disadvantaged people

Promoting quality education for disadvantaged children and thus improving the lives of their community is the goal of the Agami Education Foundation (AEF). Good health is essential for quality education. Agami assists the good health of students by taking up different activities through its Health for Education (HfE) project. This project works in partnership with the Platform of Doctors and medical students in Bangladesh. The project organizes need-based health camps like general health camps, eye camps, and dental camps.

Impact
Agami believes providing health education and care service to students is one of their key roles and responsibilities. The objectives of the school health program are -
Promotion of positive health
Prevention of diseases
Early diagnosis, treatment and follow up
Awakening health consciousness in children
Gender issue awareness

in 2022 more than 30 health camps were held covering 1500 students in 4 schools.

Population(s) Served

Agami EdTech's mission is to bring free world-class digital educational technology to every student in Bangladesh. We use our experience with the world-famous Khan Academy, USA model to develop video lessons and interactive exercises tailored and customized to the Bangladesh School Curricula.

Agami EdTech program impacts 100,000 students per year and through our most recent reach-to-teach platform, 1200 teachers were trained

Population(s) Served

Teachers are one of the fundamental aspects of quality education and, without impacting them, it is not possible to ensure quality education for students. Intending to enhance the quality of education, Agami Education Foundation (AEF) initiated the Teachers’ Training Program (TT) in 2016. Since then, a dedicated teachers' training team has been relentlessly working to improve and enable teachers to ensure effective learning among students.

Teachers’ Training program has been arranging training for the teachers following the National Curriculum and Textbook Board (NCTB) to enhance the textbook-teaching process to a more holistic approach. The program aims to develop the content and pedagogical knowledge and continuous assessment techniques among teachers so that they can facilitate students to achieve the learning outcome as well as soft, hard and foundational skills. Currently there are teachers from 19 schools participating in Agami's teachers' training program.
