Great kindness Challenge
The power of kindness within the society can be promoted to make the world a better place, every day, with even the simplest of kind acts. Youth Development Program of JAAGO Foundation has been celebrating “Great Kindness Challenge” since 2011 with the theme ‘Kindness Matters’ till today. Great Kindness Challenge is a worldwide initiative to show respect and inspire people who work all day and night to keep us safe, secure and conscious. When you are kind to others, it not only changes you, it changes the world. Volunteers met with various Political Personnel, Journalists, Lawyers, NGOs, Freedom Fighters, and Sportsmen of the country. With flowers and handmade cards VBD volunteers and students thanked these personnel for serving us faithfully and silently year after year without receiving any appreciation or gratification in return.

The power of kindness within the society can be promoted to make the world a better place. Every day with even the simplest of kind acts. Youth Development Program came again to celebrate “Great Kindness Challenge 2017” with the theme ‘Kindness Matters’. When you are kind to others, it not only changes you at the same time it changes the world. We have selected 19 GKC Coordinators for the respective districts to synchronize the whole event and they will tool all the responsibilities for making GKC’17 successful with similar activities in the previous years. Volunteers and children spread around in to various teams and visited almost every police station in the capital and also at the port city wearing the official VBD t-shirts. They visited the police stations of Gulshan, Tejgaon and Ramna, as well as the offices of the Dhaka Police Commissioner and the Inspector General. The teams presented the officers with roses and greeting cards prepared by the JAAGO kids and a letter of appreciation from the President of Volunteer for Bangladesh and Founder of JAAGO Foundation Korvi Rakshand. The letter compassionately thanked the Police Department of Bangladesh for its tremendous effort in ensuring safety and upholding the law and urged the force to utilize its full potential to make Bangladesh an even better place to live in.

There are thousands of people in Bangladesh who selflessly dedicate themselves to jobs of public interest while working 7 days a week. Such jobs include that of a police officer, fire brigade, doctors and so on. Our purpose is to show some of them a small gesture of thanks, and pay them a tribute for their tireless activities for the society. Our challenge is to bring a smile on their faces through the small things that we can do to make them feel special.
