One million people. Half a million children and youth in need of education support. 34 camps in Cox's Bazar.
The scale of the crisis for the Rohingya who fled Myanmar in 2017 and the host communities in Cox's Bazar is enormous. Thankfully, many partners have stepped up and are actively supporting the Government of Bangladesh in responding to the crisis, including by providing education services. But more needs to be done, in particular to ensure that youth aged 15 to 18 have access to education services and are not left behind.
