Additional Financing for the Reaching Out of School Children Project II (ROSC II) Project
IDA Grant: $25 million
Project ID: P131394
Project Description: This financing to the Reaching Out of School Children Project II (ROSC II) is to help Bangladesh provide learning opportunities and support to heal the psychological wounds of Rohingya children and youth who have fled violence in Myanmar. The additional financing on grant terms expands an existing World Bank project to help about 350,000 Rohingya children and adolescents get basic education in learning centers. All learning activities, including preparation of text books and learning materials will adhere to the government’s ‘Learning Competency Framework.’ This will also help strengthen the government’s service delivery system in Cox’s Bazar.
