Friendship NGO has built a resource centre in Cox’s Bazar to get Rohingya children accustomed to their own education and culture.

 The Rohingya population forced out of Myanmar lost their education and ties to their culture after taking refuge in Bangladesh for years.

 Friendship is building a resource centre to promote the spread of their own language and culture among Rohingya children, in camp 9 at Ukhiya.  The construction of the resource centre was inaugurated by Ambassador of Thailand Makawadee Sumitmor on Monday.

 Additional Commissioner for Refugee Relief and Repatriation Md Shamsud Douza and UNICEF Bangladesh representative Sheldon Yett joined as special guests.

 Brig Gen (retd) Ilyas Iftekhar Rasul, Head of Education Department, said that at present, 28,145 Rohingya children are receiving their Burmese language lessons and daily necessities from 396 Friendship Learning Centres. 717 trainers are teaching these Rohingya children.
