Topic: Private tutor is the only hope for the children to study as the Learning Center is closed.
Translation summary: The camp's learning centers have remained closed since the outbreak of Covid-19. As a result, Rohingyas are now turning to private tutors. Hasina Begum from camp18 said that the children are being harmed in various ways as the learning centers have been closed for a long time. So, the Rohingyas are trying to teach their children by private tutors, selling rations thinking about the future of the children. Hasina said she has two children, and she has given two children to a private tutor. She added that she would continue to educate her children at any cost.
A Rohingya community teacher Mohammad Hasan said, prior to the outbreak of Covid-19, he worked as a community teacher at the Dam's learning Center to teach children from the Rohingya community. But since the closure of the Learning Center, he is teaching the children in room, just to keep them fresh. Initially, parents were reluctant to send their children to private tutors, however now many parents are inclined to send their children to private tutors. But most parents cannot afford private tuition for their children.
