The Education Cannot Wait initiative has committed US$3 million (£2.2 million) for Rohingya refugees in Bangladesh. This will help cover more than 70 percent of the emergency educational needs of Rohingya refugee children until the end of 2017. DFID is developing an ambitious new education policy to ensure that the most marginalised children begin learning now. We are reviewing options for further funding as part of our longer term response to the Rohingya refugee crisis.
