BECOMING A LOST GENERATION

Around half a million Rohingya children have been languishing and have no access to education in refugee camps in Cox’s Bazar. They say we’re on the verge of completing their schooling in a few months’ time when they were forced to flee their homes by the actions of the Myanmar military, many of which amount to crimes against humanity. Since then, they have lost another two academic years. The longer they are forced to stay in the camps, the prospect of them ever realizing the opportunities every child deserves becomes more distant. They are at risk of becoming a lost generation! As of December 2017, an estimated 7,23,000 Rohingya people fled to Bangladesh to avoid persecution from the Burmese military.
