Education is the only solution

Since the government passed the 1982 Citizenship Act, the Rohingya people have been denied access to education and subjected to grave human rights abuses in Myanmar. Recently they are at the final stage of genocide, and there are more than a million people fled to Bangladesh where most of them are children and youth.

We realize the necessity of education in uplifting the entire Rohingya community out of inter-generational poverty and debt trap. This project has been designed to provide quality education for the coming generation from the grassroots level to possible higher level by equipping them with necessities.

Many requests we’ve been receiving are related to education and scholarships, particularly post-secondary level students, who have recently been displaced and took refuge in Bangladesh. There are thousands of post-secondary students now living in the Bangladesh refugee camps. They all supposed to be in colleges or universities if the Rohingyas were citizens of any country. However, less than one percent of these students have been able to secure enrollment in post-secondary institutions such as universities or colleges.

In the past few years, much light has been shed on the refugee crisis in Bangladesh. Many countries and humanitarian NGOs have paid attention to their necessities such as food, shelter, and health care, but education remains one of the main important parts for them.

Some Potential Programs

Innovative Education

  • Advancement of education by providing programs and scholarship to persecuted minority students worldwide

Target:  

  • High schools in the camps
  • Schools particularly for the girls over 12 years old.
  • English and computer Centers
  • The online post-secondary institution through the partnership of a Canadian Institute
  • Scholarship for students in Canada and abroad yearly

Our Scholarship Program enables underprivileged youth to continue the academic study and attain an education that will be essential to their futures as well as to the future of their communities.

Our organization aims to support students through full and partial funding and university partnerships. Students pursue different degree levels and academic fields of study, and a growing number of alumni benefit from mentoring and professional development opportunities.

Career development through vocational training programs to promote employment such as;
