Topic: Rohingyas are running the school program RCS, on their own initiative to be educated in Burmese education.
Translation summary: Although millions of Rohingyas found refuge in Bangladesh, they did not have much opportunity to study. Moreover, the camps have education centers for young children, but there are no specific schools for older children. Aman Ullah (35) from Camp 12 said, thinking about the future of the children, two years ago, all the teachers suggested that a program called Rohingya Children School (RCS) be introduced according to the Burmese curriculum from class one to class nine. As there is no official permission to launch this program, there is no institutional form of this program. However, the program is continuing with the teaching of Makhtab, Madrasa or small groups at home. He further said that all kinds of problems of the program are solved through the committee. But the program is currently closed due to a severe lockdown caused by the Coronavirus. Mohammad Idris a student of the RCS program said, we are benefiting a lot by the opportunity to study according to the Burmese curriculum through the RCS program. While studying in this program we are spending some money, which our parents are having a hard time to bear.

Topic: Arakan Army-AA Have Been Coercing, Killing and Persecuting on Rohingya to Drive them Out from Arakan and Grab the Belonging of Rohingya after Separation of Arakan State from Myanmar
Translation summary: Hafez Mohammed Zubair, temporary resident of Kutupalong Camp- 05 said to VOA Rohingya Lifeline Program that the insurgent group, Arakan Army-AA and the Myanmar Military Government (State Administrative Council-SAC) are the two regnant in Arakan State. But State Administrative Council-SAC has given power to Kaing Thu Ka, the spokesperson and the leader of Arakan Army-AA after the continuous sanction of International Community, European Union of International Court of Justices-ICJ, International Criminal Court-ICC and other. So, Arakan Army has started killing, coercing, persecuting the Rohingya or imposing fines on them in Arakan, Myanmar. Like these, I have known through people of Arakan that Sing Taung-lung, Anuwar of Maungdaw township have been fined about 100 thousand kyats fine by Arakan Army three days ago., Arakan Army has been doing continuously the same thing at Rohingya village tracts such as Punyu Laik, Sendi Parang, Wigga, Then-Gu Daing and so on of Buthidaung township area.
Zubair added that the insurgent group works for peace and the liberation of people against existing government but not the Arakan Army. Even it has been working against minority Rohingya of Arakan to drive out the Rohingya from Arakan and grab the belongings of Rohingya .
