Rohingya Refugee Children's School

$1,740 of $3,000 goal

Raised by 29 people in 8 months
Since October 2016, 75,000 refugees have fled persecution, military "clearance operations" and mass rape in Northern Rakhine State. In order to discourage the influx, the government of Bangladesh refuses to allow international charities access to this population or to supply emergency food or health services. Over 90 percent of the refugees are not allowed to be registered and live in fields and forests.

World Rohingya Organization  is a small but well positioned voluntary organization that has access to this vulnerable community through family and friends and visited the refugees for two months in early 2017. This is WRO School in Teknaf, Cox's Bazaar, bangladesh where 83 Rohingya refugee kids including 43 orphans are getting elementary Burmese, Bangla, English and Quran lessons . The school was heavily damaged by Cyclone Mora in May 2017 but the community wishes to keep teaching the students, who have no other educational prospects.





Mohiuddin Yusof, the President of World Rohingya Organization, is based in New York City but in constant touch with the impacted community in Teknaf. They have asked him to help them maintain the school and while he continues his advocacy for Rohingya refugees in the USA and around the world, he is struggling to keep that promise and needs your help.

Here is a short video showing some of the children at the school and their needs: 



Two teachers each 7000 taka per month; the total for 2 teachers 14000 taka salary, plus children breakfast, snack and books, paper and pencils total 10,000 taka per month-- or 300 Dollars per month which can keep the entire school going during that time.





WRO is also developing a female empowerment and awareness session 4 times a month weekly program of WRO in Noyapara refugee camp,Teknaf. This program is designed to keep Rohingya refugee women and unmarried girls safe from human traffickers and other "bad guys"  who falsely promise marriage with affluent Rohingya youths in Karachi and Jeddah or Chittagong.


This is a real crisis situation and help is needed to save lives. The prospects of the Rohingya refugees in Bangladesh are especially precarious . Your help is very important... and despite the many challenges, WRO has rare access to food distribution points as well as the school.  May Allah Bless you for your efforts for Rohingyas.

AA: REQUEST FOR QURBANI for ROHINGYA REFUGEES who participate in the refugee camp school

As you all know, the students received almost $1,000 and sent back a video in thanks, posted in this site. Your donations will get to them, and will also show them that fellow Muslims have not forgotten. Hope is needed, as since Ramadan there has been a new troop build up in Rakhine State, Burma, and the signs are ominous for more violent repression. Rohingya fear returning, even though Bangladesh does not allow foreign charities access or allow 90% of them to be registered. PLEASE SEND YOUR DONATIONS FOR THIS NEED by August 30, 2017. JAZAKALLAH SISTERS & BROTHERS

UPDATE: After GoFundMe and its Partners took out their Commission, we sent $917.00 to the school shortly after Ramadan ended. Here is the school's THANK YOU video which we share with everyone here. We will check this site in case anyone gives more-- :)
