As of now, sixty Rohingya women leaders and one hundred twenty women in the host community have received literacy education under this initiative.

They are also getting engaged with dialogue and discussion with the young women in the host community and at the Rohingya refugee camps for building awareness on gender rights and the available national and international instruments for safeguarding women against gender-based violence.
