JAGO NARI has started its activities in 1998 with its own resource with a view to help the poor people in many respects of Barguna a under developed costal District in the southern part of Bangladesh in terms of socio economic perspective as well as livelihood. It is a non political, non profit, rights based and non government Organization (NGO) committed to participate in and promote national development through upgrading the socio economic condition and promoting and protecting the rights of the disadvantaged, deprived backward and poor communities of the society. Some like minded, qualified and experienced women of the society established JAGO NARI in the middle of 1998.
At first JAGO NARI started its activities in a right based approach among poor and working women in Urban and rural area of Barguna sadar upazilla. At present this organization has expanded its activities to 8 districts in Bangladesh with different programs, with some different ideas and concepts with greater zeal and enthusiasm through the assistance of GO, INGO, NGO and local peoples. JAGO NARI believes that true development can be ensured by establishing human rights and eradicating the poverty through providing different support to the distressed community. It also believes that men and women have same rights to survive. If organization can create better communication with community people organization's ideas will give a better result but without involving community people it does not give 100% output. So JAGO NARI is working with the community people to provide same right for men and women in the community.
