During this initial engagement with various stakeholders, it was recognized that the main factor affecting the refugee community was the number of school dropouts and early pregnancies, and this was linked to the large number of single mothers who were unable to raise and care for their children due to lack of income generation. These dropout children started engaging themselves in drugs and alcohol which was negatively impacting their neighborhood, leading young girls in sexual activities. To respond to the above challenges, BRH has opened a recreation space for dropout children to provide different vocational training services such as life-skills activities (Tailoring) and livelihood activities (growing mushrooms and vegetable training) through self-reliance and resilience training.
