What We Do

What We Do

ROTA has joined the global effort to achieve basic, quality education for both primary and secondary school children throughout Asia and the Middle East - helping local communities overcome major obstacles to the education that can ultimately lead to a better quality of life in Asia.

 

Approach

Our approach focuses on promoting and investing in access to quality education and in the development of human resources, in close partnership with local and international communities. We apply the following tactics to accomplish our goals.

  • Understanding the needs of local communities before offering solutions
  • Collaborating with communities to ensure program support and sustainability
  • Empowering youth to become leaders in society
  • Promoting cultural dialogue and fostering a sense of unity
  • Employing cutting-edge technology to facilitate programs
  • Connecting universities within the region

ROTA has identified ten countries where immediate action is a priority:

  • Afghanistan
  • Bangladesh
  • Cambodia
  • Indonesia
  • Iraq
  • Lebanon
  • Nepal
  • Pakistan
  • Occupied Palestinian Territories
  • Syria 
Some of them are among the world’s poorest countries according to the World Bank, while others have suffered war or natural disasters in recent years. In each country ROTA assists the restoration of social and educational infrastructure and ensures a better future for 48 million children.
In each of our chosen countries, we will build or adopt schools; promote female education; initiate academic fellowships; coordinate student exchange programs; provide teacher and vocational training; and connect participating countries through a shared Knowledge Network.
