Our Connection:

Seed Grant. Catalyst Grant. The Skees Family Foundation decided to fund the JAAGO Foundation in 2014. We thought the progress they had made so far throughout Bangladesh was quite promising and we wanted to be a part of their future success. We are funding them through the Jolkona Foundation, who works to empower, educate, and engage new generations of philanthropists in order to guide them in sustainable, effective ways of giving.
