Day-Care Center for Rohingya Refugee Children

Every child has the right to receive a basic education. But unfortunately, in Bangladesh, hundreds of thousands of children are being deprived of a basic education because of their socio-economic condition and lack of awareness. According to the National Child Labour Survey 2013, about 17, 00,000 children are engaged in hazardous child labour.It is in this backdrop that the current Education Program commenced its journey with only 7 students in January 2008. Initially, there was a lot of skepticism and misgivings regarding the usefulness of the classes. However, APON School teachers have managed to gain the trust and faith of the guardians of the students with their sincerity, honesty, dedication and diligence. As a result, the number of students increased from only 7 children in one centre to over 400 children in 15 centres by the end of 2019.
