‘When I Grow Up’

Virtual Exhibition of Rohingya children’s art for education

24 January 2021 – 19 February 2021

The pandemic has taken away one more year out of the lives of Rohingya children in the refugee settlements in Cox’s Bazar. Access to quality education, along with the preventive measures put in place for COVID-19, is critical to prevent the children from becoming a lost generation.

Amnesty International organized an ‘art camp’ for children in the refugee settlement in Cox’s Bazar in June 2019. The art camp, supported by UNICEF and facilitated by six prominent Bangladeshi cartoonists, brought together Rohingya children’s aspirations about what they wish to become when they grow up.

On World Education Day 2021, Amnesty International brings to you a collection of these works of art by Rohingya children.
