Within a year since the Rohingya refugees fleeing violence in Myanmar started to arrive in Cox’s Bazar in masses. More than 745,000 have fled the border by now, and 52% of the refugees are women and girls. UN Women’s response for Rohingya refugees aims at meeting specific needs of the most vulnerable and marginalised women and girls: female headed households, elderly women and adolescent girls.
We works in partnership with UN Women and other humanitarian agencies to ensure protection and equitable access of refugee women to humanitarian assistance and information, in order to enhance their self-reliance and decision making and mitigate their risks of being exploited.
Our main goal is to work towards empowering Rohingya women and girls through life-skills training and supportive services. The services are being provided through the Multi-Purpose Women’s Centres in Camps.
