The chance to learn and have fun again

young Rohingya refugee Jannatulat kinder

Having fled conflict in Myanmar with her mother, young Rohingya refugee Jannatul*, aged five, found refuge in a camp at Cox’s Bazar, Bangladesh. She now attends classes at a World Vision child-friendly space.  

Her teacher Farjana, aged 20, teaches the children rhymes and the alphabet. Jannatul is one of Farjana’s favourite students. “She attends the child-friendly space every day,” says Farjana. “She concentrates on her studies and when I teach them something, she follows me carefully.”  

Farjana teaches five days a week and she loves her co-workers. “One thing I like, there is more support for facilitators ... At World Vision, everyone is like a brother or sister.”  

Coming to the child-friendly space and learning together is vital for children like Jannatul who have had their world turned upside down. “When they came, they had seen so many bad things in front of their eyes. When they are here, they can forget those things. They can have fun,” adds Farjana. 

She has hopes for Jannatul’s future. “As she has faced so much and lost her father, I hope she will be a good person and educated to do something for her family.” 

When you purchase gifts that support education, you will be helping to provide vulnerable children like Jannatul with the chance to gain the knowledge and skills they need to succeed.
