Ayub is one of half a million children who fled to Bangladesh to escape violence in Myanmar, witnessing more trauma than most of us will in a lifetime. Life in the world’s biggest refugee camp leaves little space for a childhood, and enough space for uncertainty.
We believe that every child deserves a childhood and a future. Almost two years since the influx in August 2017, Ayub is now one of 70,000 children who are laughing, learning and playing in our 700 learning centres in Cox’s Bazar. BRAC’s education programme brings more than 30 years of experience in providing educational opportunities to children of marginalised communities. Our goal in Cox’s Bazar is to expand and strengthen immediate access to equitable learning opportunities for children and young people affected by the crisis in Rohingya and host communities in a safe and protective environment.
