Safe spaces the Rohingya refugee camps

In 2019, BSF deployed eight Ideas Box and thirty Ideas Cubes in the Rohingya refugee camps of the Cox’s Bazar district. These libraries enable children and teenagers to learn how to read and write, in a context where illiteracy affects 70% of the population. Local mediators also regularly organize writing, theater, and photography workshops for the Rohingya and Bangladeshi communities.

In 2022, BSF and the UEFA Foundation for Children organized the second edition of the “Refugees eSport Cup” in the Kutupalong camp, the only eSport competition in a refugee camp. About 50 young Rohingya girls and boys participated in the event.
