Let Rohingya Learn

The Rohingya Education Campaign

Rohingya youth have lacked access to education because of persecution in Burma and restrictions on refugees in other countries like Bangladesh. This will have a negative impact on the future of the Rohingya people. Burma Task Force will advocate for increased access.

Hundreds of thousands of Rohingya children have been crowded into vast refugee camps in Cox’s Bazar, Bangladesh. Unfortunately, local authorities have largely ignored Rohingya rights to education.

Like animals in a zoo, young refugees are kept alive with regular feeding, but their human potential has been ignored.

What YOU Can Do For The Rohingya:
1
Sign the petition now to ask the Bangladesh Prime Minister to allow Rohingya full access to education. We need 10,000 signatures from Muslims, Christians, Buddhists, Jews etc.
2
We need 200 volunteers to advocate for Rohingya learning. Sign up now.
3
Ask your congresspersons to tie aid to full access to education
4
Our newsletter is a great way to keep informed of our work for Rohingya, and how you can be part of it.

Living in a refugee camp is like being in limbo. In jail, at least a prisoner has a release date to look forward to. To refugees, there is no future in sight. I was detained repeatedly as I tried to save my life by seeking safety in another nation…
