Hiring consultant/consulting firm for Graphic Design Work.

On March 24 2020, the government declared Education as non-essential in the Rohingya refugee camps, nearly 6,000 education facilities across the camps have closed for the foreseeable future, denying over 325,000 children (of which, 49% are girls) and adolescents aged 3 to 18 years, access to education. These students are missing vital learning opportunities and have had their social support systems further disrupted. Moreover, without access to learning facilities – and in isolation – there is little scope to provide clear communication messaging, psychosocial support to both students and educators, as well as meet their social-emotional needs or provide life skills education.

Teachers, parents and caregivers lack the tools and strategies to home-school their children without structured guidance, while also ensuring children’s safety, security, and physical-mental wellbeing. Rohingya caregivers/parents, mostly with low educational attainment, do not have experience in distance schooling, and will struggle to support their children’s learning. Additionally, the mental and psychosocial wellbeing of children during this stressful time will be compromised. Girls will become more vulnerable to exclusion, more isolated without access to their usual peer networks or community-based learning opportunities, and more susceptible to gender-based violence. Children who experience learning and/or physical challenges will face additional difficulties through further lack of support, frustration at home, and the discontinuation of positive outlets.

Objectives of the Partnership:

Aims at reaching 62.500 learners in the camp (ages 10-18), 2,000 facilitators (camp), 25 secondary schools (host community) both girls and boys including youth in school, and in non-school based settings with the ECW grant. This target will also cover, most importantly, 1,500 children living with disabilities.
