Hillary Clinton enthusiastically answered questions raised by eager youngsters in the ISD theatre during her visit to Bangladesh in 2012. Her vision for Bangladesh’s emergence as a strong developing economy left the future leaders of this country with promises of opportunities coming their way. When asked how she overcame the obstacles as a woman to become one of the most influential women in the world today, she emphasized the importance of a good education and the support of her parents!
Through several initiatives, JAAGO reaches out to the youth of Bangladesh to involve them in extending educational facilities to those who are underprivileged. Universal Children’s Day (UCD) is an initiative through which students of many schools, including ISD, partake in raising funds for street children, by selling flowers on the roads of Dhaka. The children are treated to a day of fun which is conducted through volunteering by the students as well. ISD has an ongoing affiliation with JAAGO and their remarkable work.
The Weekend School was initiated by an ISD Graduate, Adeeb Tawsif. Every Saturday, children from JAAGO and currently the School of Hope come and enjoy the ISD facilities. They swim, play music and sports with ISD students, who volunteer their time happily for the day.
Guest speakers come to events like UN Week and career days.
