In this Sept. 18, 2013 photo, a volunteer teacher prepares to lash a child with a cane during teaching at Rohingya Village Madrassa in The’ Chaung Village on the outskirts of Sittwe in Rakhine state, Myanmar. With almost no outside support, the staff are all unpaid. And due to a shortage of textbooks, they struggle to get across even the basics. Because Rohingya children are no longer welcome in many government schools, the so-called Rohingya Village Madrassa has opened its doors to some of those boys and girls, teaching not just Islamic studies, as it did in the past, but Burmese and English.
