We’re delighted to share that the number of classrooms we are supporting for Rohingya refugees on Bhasan Char island in Bangladesh has doubled this summer.
Take a look at the progress that has been made and meet student, Puri.
The Body Shop At Home has been a passionate supporter of Children on the Edge for decades and this month we popped our Christmas hats on - in near 28 degrees of sunshine - to celebrate with consultants at their Christmas conference.
It’s been an exciting time for the children at our learning centres in Kutupalong in Bangladesh. Classes returned to school in July with a warm colourful welcome from their teachers and they received brand new text books.
Take a look at the joyful photos we received from our partners...
In Kyaka II refugee settlement, Uganda, Children on the Edge have been trying to find and develop better ways of assessing whether our early years programme is having a positive impact on the children we work with.
Are we effectively preparing them for their unknown and potentially difficult futures?
Find out how an innovative new approach is helping make assessments both meaningful and joyful.

Children on the Edge
In India, a support programme for older children to obtain secondary level qualifications is helping Dalit communities to break out of the cycle of poverty and exclusion. Read about Vikki and his mother, Gita, who are both benefiting from the programme.
July started with a bang with the launch of our newest virtual challenge - Summer Steps for Refugees - and the highlights didn’t stop there. We were thrilled to find out that our digital education programme had won an iFDesign Award and we were able to hear for the first time from some of the Rohingya refugees who have been relocated to the remote Bhasan Char Island. Read on to catch up with some of our news from this month.
Two years on from the Taliban takeover of Afghanistan, the Herat Online School offers a vital lifeline to Afghan women and girls cut off from education, bringing hope and a chance to connect with the outside world, as they are forced to stay home, out of sight.
Children on the Edge works to create conditions in which every marginalised child can flourish and thrive no matter where they live and irrespective of the challenging circumstances they face.
We identify children in some of the world’s toughest situations and work alongside local communities to co-create protective environments, so marginalised children can safely live, learn, play and grow.
This year, we reached more children than ever before, and saw three of our models of education and child protection replicated to new places, bringing sustainable change on a wider scale.
