The season of Thanksgiving is here!
We’re so grateful to be finishing up another incredible year full of new projects, book distributions, teacher trainings, and even coloring competitions. We’re kicking off the holiday season with some more book distributions.

Students gathered and spent the day coloring in the assigned piece. A panel of judges selected the winners and awarded them with their prizes.
These coloring competitions were requested by the community members. We thought it was a great idea – a little bit of healthy competition can be fun and motivating!

Our local coordinator in the Rohingya refugee camp distributed:
- 250 coloring books
- 250 packages of coloring pencils
- 250 pencil sharpeners
We set up a series of 5 coloring competitions, which includes a prize for 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place for each group.
One scene was selected in the Coloring Book as the competition assignment. The prizes were awarded to the students based on creativity and use of color.
Rohingya Coloring Books Distributed
Why Coloring Books?
Coloring books can serve as powerful tools for refugees. Our contextualized books provide a form of cultural preservation in addition to a therapeutic activity to aid in the trauma healing process. Our books promote diversity and inclusive learning through contextualization. Every cartoon designed in our book is modeled after a real person in the target community. Marginalized children have very little access to creative activities. We provide a platform for creativity to ensure every child has the opportunity to express themselves.
