Cox's Bazar, Bangladesh

Rohingya refugee children reading Korans at a madrassa in Camp1W in the Kutupalong extension site where 270 children study seven subjects, all of them with a religious theme. Madrassas have emerged as important providers of education to the Rohingya refugee population, for whom learning opportunities are in short supply. Despite considerable gains over the past year, around one third of refugee children aged 4 to 14 in camps are estimated not to be receiving education. Over 1,000 learning centres are still required to ensure all children aged 4-14 have access to education. UNICEF is exploring alternative pathways such as shared and home-based learning facilities targeting younger children. There are currently no secondary level education opportunities for adolescents and youth in the camps; over 96 per cent of adolescents and youth aged 15 years and above do not have access to any form of learning.
