Now 4th years on almost 800,000 Rohingya people have fled violence, abuse and unimaginable horrors in Myanmar’s Rakhine state and escaped to Bangladesh where around 32,000 registered Rohingya refugee were already staying since 1992 at Nayapara and Kutupalong camps. Now, they are struggling with the daily challenges of life in the cramped and unsanitary refugee camps. More than half of those living in the camps are children where 3 out 4 don’t have access to education. In addition, The Rohingya students expelled from local schools in Bangladesh for being refugees and Bangladesh have provided no legal pathway for Rohingya refugee children to attend the local school.
Currently, education in the refugee camps is delivered by a range of International aid agencies (INGO) community-based organisations (CBO) and other national development organisations but responsibilities vary. However, there are no formal curriculum or framework for Rohingya children. Many organisations have educational responsibility for a handful of camps – managing many of the ‘temporary learning centres’, secular education in Madrassas and ‘Child-Friendly Spaces.
The reason, why AROUK took the imitative to provide quality meaningful education on children in camps. Currently, we have two learning centres in camps where more than 300 children are enrolled. So your donations will help us to run those and provide them with essential needs such as school kits, books, providing regular school meals which is the key to children receiving a good education. Teacher trainings and incentive for the teachers to continue the teaching.
