The Rohingya Crisis
The Rohingya people, a Muslim-minority group, are currently facing systematic persecution in Myanmar. This has resulted in the forced migration of more than a million Rohingya Muslims to Bangladesh, with the number increasing each day. The UN describes this Rohingya Refugee Crisis as “a textbook example of ethnic cleansing”.
Our non-profit campaign is committed to positively impacting the Rohingya Refugee Community in Bangladesh. The goal is to support the most vulnerable segments of the Rohingya Camps, which we have identified to be children and pregnant women. We aim to do this by partnering up with organizations that are actively working at the ground level.
Our target is three fold:
•raise awareness about the Rohingya Crisis
•provide funding to active organizations working in the camps
•positively impact the Rohingya Refugee Camps through fund disbursement and advocacy.

The Rohingya Children's Safe Haven Project
We have partnered up with JAAGO to help build a center which will provide children with the following:
Safe shelter: An administered area which will be staffed by trained, local professionals to care for and teach the children during the day.
Meals: Children will be provided nutritious, hot meals and snacks.
A sense of normalcy: Life will never be the same, but the goal is to help keep the children's spirits strong by giving them a safe space to go every day, to eat, to learn and keep them engaged in play.
