BANGLADESH: Rohingya youth hunger for education

November 10, 2010

"According to a joint UN assessment of the camp in June, education for the Rohingya remains a key concern. Over 70 percent of heads of households in the two camps (the other is at Nayapara, further south) have no formal education, while only 18 percent received any primary education, a 2009 Action Against Hunger (ACF) survey cited in the report revealed. Just 3 percent had attended any secondary education (six or more years of education as opposed to five for primary), the assessment found."
