Résumé du projet
The project of CO-OPERAID in Bangladesh is dedicated to helping the children of ethnic minorities in the Bandarban Hill Tracts by raising the local education rate. The indigenous hill tribes (Marma, Mro, Khumi and Chakma) live in desperate poverty and are discriminated as an ethnic minority among a huge Bengali majority population.
The land of their fathers is today ruled by a military administration that gives the hill tribes no rights to participate in the development of their communities. Basic facilities like health centres or schools are very few in the hill tracts. The very low level of literacy in the region is a major constraint.
Therefore, the project supports children who are deprived of primary education. It engages for the international childs right to education. In 15 remote villages of the Hill Tracts the project runs NGO village schools. Two hostels in Bandarban city allow about 50 youths of those villages to also obtain secondary school education.
Furthermore, it supports helth care and sanitation as well as literacy and income projects for parents.
Project partner is the local Hill Tribe NGO Humanitarian Foundation.
Thank you for supporting our work in the Bandarban Hill Tracts!
