Rohingya plea for education to deter risks of becoming a lost generation
One early afternoon, thousands of Rohingya Muslims in Bangladesh’s sprawling refugee camps had just completed their midday prayers and were moving toward makeshift tents for lunch.

A sweet sound of the recitation of the Quran by a chorus of children was heard from a camp-based mosque in camp no. 12.

The world’s largest refugee settlement in Bangladesh, divided into 34 camps, is currently home to more than 1.2 million Rohingya, most of whom fled a brutal military clampdown in their home country of Myanmar’s Rakhine State in August 2017.

Human Rights Watch meanwhile renewed its call for the government to ease movement restrictions on Rohingya, saying that barring refugees from leaving the camps for work or shutting down their shops within the camps only compounds their misery.
