Bangladesh has unfortunately suffered from a cycle of regular natural disasters, from flooding to yearly storms. ROTA’s efforts focused on Cox’s Bazar District in the country, and provided support for the most vulnerable members of the community.With Muslim Aid, ROTA launched three programs, targeting different elements of both education and disaster readiness. A detailed individual household assessment was carried out in Cox’s Bazar district highlighted the extreme poverty and vulnerability of the people and their need for humanitarian and employment support and services.

Disaster preparedness and Food Needs for Disadvantaged Communities in Cox’s Bazar
The Ramadan program covered youth who were not only socially, financially, economically and culturally disadvantaged and vulnerable due to poverty, but also live in an area severely affected by natural catastrophes. The beneficiaries of the project were youth aged from 14 to 25, living in the Upazilla of Teknaf, one of the most vulnerable areas of Bangladesh.  The overall aim of this project was to provide iftar and sahur to 120 poor youth in ten villages and at the same time provide training on basic disaster preparedness.  The program ran from in Ramadan 2009, and resulted in the increased awareness of disaster risk reduction and preparedness in affected communities.

INEE Minimum Standard Project
During the field mission, ROTA delegates  found that classroom spaces were not up to standards, and in most cases would severely impede learning due to lack of space, light,  ventilation, and general facilities.  Some classrooms lacked easy access to water as well, adversely affecting hygiene.  This was the primary factor in the high drop-out rates in the school, especially with female students.
