Making a world of difference
This group of students use their inflatable globe to take in the world from the Uchiprang refugee camp in Bangladesh. The inflatable globe was part of the educational supplies contained in the School-in-a-Box, which allows children to keep learning – even in times of crisis.
Following an escalation of violence in August 2017, over half a million Rohingya refugees have fled to neighbouring Bangladesh. Almost 60% of the lastest arrivals are children, many of whom have been left traumatised by the violence.
UNICEF is focused on providing Rohingya children with learning and support services in child-friendly spaces, as well as providing education supplies to facilitate their learning.
