This paper explores key problems faced by different humanitarian agencies in educating Rohingya refugees from Myanmar seeking asylum in Bangladesh. The first half this research provides an overview of the challenges faced by different refugee communities globally in the Education sector, followed by the relevant ICT interventions. Then, based on our interviews and focus group discussions with Rohingya refugees, we highlight the roadblocks faced by them while accessing education services in their camps. Absence of coherent curriculum, challenges with language, lack of qualified teachers, and non-acceptance of ICTs as primary education tools for children are identified as some of the key challenges faced by Rohingyas. Based on our research, we recommend that enabling policies and an inclusive hybrid knowledge network, emboldened by pre and in-service teacher training, inclusive religious education, standardized curriculum, and tangible employment opportunities can pave the path for a better and an educated future for the persecuted Rohingyas.
