Who We’ve Worked With

Who are the Rohingya?

The Rohingya are an ethnic minority from Rakhine State, Myanmar. They have faced persecution at the hands of the Myanmar military. In August 2017, an outbreak of violence by the Myanmar military forced over 600,000 Rohingya to flee to neighboring Bangladesh. They now live in Kutupalong  — also known as the World’s Largest Refugee Camp. There are currently over 1 million people living in Kutupalong.

Education in the Camps

Resources are not enough to provide education for every student, ages 5 – 18. When resources are scarce, education can fall off the list of priorities. Informal learning is the most flexible and ideal alternative for a refugee living in an unpredictable environment.

We have developed Rohingya-specific learning materials that can be used in the home or in a learning center, child friendly space, or community center.

What Language Do They Learn?

We strive to provide materials in their native language. The Rohingya language is unwritten, but we collaborate with scholars and linguists who have been developing a written form. Our materials provide instruction in English, Burmese, and written Rohingya — developed from the orthography of

What’s Special About Your Materials?

Everything is contextualized to the Rohingya culture. We conduct in-field research, collect reference photos from our Rohingya friends. All of the cartoon characters were created from reference photos of real-life people who have inspired us. Every single cartoon has been approved by a Rohingya community member. These materials are more relatable to them, fostering greater engagement.
