Through the alternative learning opportunity and or nonformal education JAAGO reached the most underrepresented groups of Coxs Bazar : the surfers community girls ensuring them a community based education.
Furthermore, to challenge the fear of gender based violence JAAGO has been working actively in raising awareness through behavior changing interventions for the local communities involving and led by the youth. To ensure active women participation in the governance process and advance citizen engagement, the youth development programme compels each district to include at least two female members in the decision making committee of seven people. To promote healthy reproductive practice JAAGO ensures access to healthy menstrual hygiene practice for its female students and youth leaders.

As a part of advocacy against the fear of Gender-Based Violence against women, the campaign aims to sensitise women, men, and communities on the issues that can minimise the fear of gender-based violence in the long term through capacity-building of the youth.
