An estimated 421,000 Rohingya – a largely stateless Muslim minority in Myanmar – have arrived in Bangladesh since the latest bout of violence broke out on August 25.

Bangladesh: Rohingya build shelters as crowds grow
Description: With hundreds of thousands of arrivals from Myanmar crowding into southeast Bangladesh, refugees are forced to improvise shelter as best they can. UNHCR is delivering tarpaulins to many, and the lucky ones have built sturdier structures to withstand the seasonal rains. But the needs are far greater than the emergency aid available. nformation for media: If you would like to use this video to communicate refugee stories or require B-Roll, transcripts, stills or much more information, please contact hqvideo@unhcr.org. --- Keep up to date with our latest videos: https://www.youtube.com/user/unhcr?sub_confirmation=1 -- UNHCR, the UN refugee agency, works to protect and assist those fleeing war and persecution.

Bangladesh: Rohingya migrant crisis

Kutupalong is the biggest refugee camp in South East Bangladesh. The registered camp and the makeshift camp stand side by side.

Bangladesh: Fighting for gender equality
Description: For the last fifty years, since 1966 when Diakonia was established, our focus has been on people exposed to injustice. We have been working on finding opportunities and co-operations to change their situation. Bangladesh is one of the most populated countries in the world. The livelihood of the people has improved during the last years but the low-lying country is threatened by climate change and the sea level rise. In the third filmclip we meet Sultana Begum, who started to work for Diakonia 1980. A role model who worked for gender equality when nobody else did. Bo Forsberg, Secretary General, who followed her work says that her fight for the rights of women and girls has been invaluable. On our behalf Marika Griehsel, Simon Stanford and Anders Kronborg have produced four documentaries to describe our work, one from each region where we work.

With a vision of ‘education for all’, the government of Bangladesh has undertaken the Third Primary Education Development Program (PEDPIII), which covers Grades I through V and one year of pre-primary education.
