Samla Capital is funding the building of a school for 200 children in Bangladesh
In August 2017, Myanmar’s army attacked Rohingya Muslim villages, forcing hundreds of thousands of Rohingya to leave their homes and flee persecution abroad. Most of them settled in Cox’s Bazar in southern Bangladesh, forming the world’s largest refugee camp, Kutupalong, within a few months. Approx. 600,000 people live in the Kutupalong camp, and many smaller Rohingya villages are nearby.
We are making a donation through Fida International and funding a school building for 200 children next to the Kutupalong Refugee Camp. The building is scheduled to be completed during 2019. Fida’s local partners are responsible for the building and operations of the school. The new school building will expand the area’s current school’s premises by adding at least two classrooms, an office and accommodation facilities. At the school, the children of the refugee camp receive the desired protection, security and instruction that support the children’s future.
