Warning on the Fate of Rohingya Children- Basic Education Gap is one of the Vital Factors.
Children need to be educated with the knowledge of science, sanitation, safety, health, math, English, computing and other vital subjects in comparison to learning arabics mentioned by the president of Mercy Refugees House.

At the outset of the refugee crisis, aid agencies set up informal learning centres for children aged three to 14, but older teenagers feel alienated and hopeless, Lawson-Tancred said.
