Education is a privilege everyone deserves, regardless of nationality, race, ethnicity, or religion. That is exactly what the JAAGO Foundation aims to do all across the country. JAAGO’s Safe Haven Project for Rohingya children targets to help 500 distressed children through better education facilities, trauma management, emotional healing, and development.
These Rohingya refugees faced chaos and suffering, being forced to flee from their own country to Bangladesh, leaving everything they knew behind. Their identities were lost as they settled down in a different place, different country, with unknown people. Nothing remained of their past lives except for haunting memories. Still, flickers of hope were reignited once more when they got the opportunity to educate their children and help them overcome their troubles- through the Safe Haven Project.
At Chitttagong’s Kutupalong Refugee Camp, hundreds of small children have post-traumatic stress disorder after having to experience extreme violence and atrocity at a very young age. They are victims of neglect, abuse, and trauma that has emotionally and physically scarred them severely. To help them overcome these battles, the Safe Haven Project launched several initiatives to support them in healing quicker.
