Jagorani Chakra Foundation(JCF) was established in 1976 as a national social welfare organisation working mainly in the southwest region of Bangladesh. Over the years, Jagorani Chakra Foundation has established a reputation as an organisation that is committed to addressing the needs of disadvantaged and vulnerable people in the community, by focusing on their social and economic development.
From the beginning Jagorani Chakra Foundation has felt that many existing development policies tend to benefit only the privileged, and although it is not possible to solve all the problems faced by community, the people themselves can identify their own priorities and plan the strategies which will lead to feasible solutions. Jagorani Chakra Foundation believes that education is the key to social change, and that the pace of development will be accelerated by the creation of self-awareness.
Jagorani Chakra Foundation has avision of socially just, economically sustainable and environmentally balanced communities, where poverty has been overcome and people live in dignity and security.
The goal of Jagorani Chakra Foundation is to support the process of poverty alleviation and the creation of socio-economic equity through the promotion of sustainable community based people’s institutions in alliance with Government and other agencies and projects.
