16 December 2019 bdnews24.com

The international community must not shirk its responsibility when it comes to the education of Rohingya children in the camps in Cox's Bazar, Amnesty International said ahead of the first Global Refugee Forum.
More than half a million children have yet to the see the inside of a classroom since they arrived in the refugee camps more than two years ago.
The Global Refugee Forum, which is being hosted by the UN's refugee agency in Geneva and takes place from 16-18 December, has made education of one its six key themes."The Rohingya children in the camps in Cox's Bazar must not become a lost generation. The international community must accept that they will not be able to return home to Myanmar any time soon. And they cannot continue to see their futures slowly stolen from them in conditions where they are being denied their right to education," said Saad Hammadi, South Asia Campaigner at Amnesty International.
"When a child receives an education, everyone benefits. Both Bangladesh and the international community must step up and share the responsibility of educating all children in Cox's Bazar, Rohingya refugees and the host community as well.
