about the innovation

Rohingya girls' education crisis

Fleeing large-scale violence and human rights abuses in Myanmar, over 655,500 Rohingya crossed neighbouring Bangladesh since September, 2017. Many of these children are showing signs of mental distress, and their displacement and statelessness expose them to high risks of violence, sexual abuse, child marriage and trafficking. 

In refugee camp settings, 85% of the girls who were enrolled in grade 6 have dropped out by grade 8. This significant reduction leads to girls having low levels of foundational literacy, greater social isolation and exclusion, increased psychological distress and prone to exploitation and abuse. AGNEE will be targeting the most vulnerable adolescent girls and providing them with physical and psycho-social protection, education resources and curriculum to aid in their cognitive development, personalised learning from teachers and, mentorship by trained community members to allow them to achieve their potential.

More specifically, AGNEE will lead:

  1. To significant improvements foundational literacy and numeracy for illiterate girls who have not prior education experience
  2. To girls feeling empowered, confident and hopeful for the future
  3. Greater social inclusion through increased connection to peers and community

The resources that we need to continue the impact of AGNEE is someone who has experience in Education in Emergencies research.
