Singapore, June 15, 2020, Beowulf Blockchain, the pioneer of the decentralized cloud network for communication services, announced the partnership with ROHINGYA PROJECT. Beowulf Blockchain will support ROHINGYA PROJECT to provide nearly 3.5 million stateless Rohingyas worldwide with education services via QUICKOM CLASSROOM and language training to help improve their lives in the current digital age.
The ROHINGYA PROJECT is officially supported by prestigious non-governmental organizations, including UNHCR, UNICEF, and UNDP, as well as academia, such as the University of Washington, University of California Los Angeles, and Osaka University.
Mr. Muhammad Noor, Co-Founder of ROHINGYA PROJECT said: “ROHINGYA PROJECT has always aimed to make education open and accessible to all stateless Rohingya people. With the introduction of QUICKOM CLASSROOM, those Rohingyans who have been sidelined for years can be given access to online education.”
“We are pleased to support ROHINGYA PROJECT to achieve its mission. With our large-scale classrooms using cutting-edge technology and our international partnerships with Olivarez College in the Philippines and National Taiwan Normal University, ROHINGYA PROJECT will address the problem of statelessness better via distance education anytime and anywhere; thus, uplifting and empowering the Rohingya diaspora worldwide,” Dr. William — CEO of Beowulf Blockchain — said.
QUICKOM CLASSROOM enables millions of Rohingya people to acquire knowledge flexibly using distance learning by scanning the QR code with the camera on their smartphone without any complex accessories or new applications required. QUICKOM offers the best distance teaching and learning experience in virtual classrooms, allowing for a massive capacity of up to 1000 people and using two-way interaction, faster connections, high-quality videos, and authentic sound.

ROHINGYA PROJECT aims to tackle one of the major problems faced by stateless Rohingya related to the lack of recognized identification. Many basic human rights largely depend on the availability of nationality by the individual. Government and private services require identification, such as a passport or national ID card, as a norm before allowing access. The ability to open a bank account, visit a health clinic, or travel freely within the country are thus denied or made increasingly difficult for stateless individuals such as the Rohingya. As per the Institute on Statelessness and Inclusions’ report, the World Stateless released the following statement in 2014, “The harsh reality for many stateless persons is a story of lack of opportunity, of lack of protection and of lack of participation.” The R-ID is not designed as a substitute for existing identity cards issued by UNHCR or other entities, but merely as a dedicated access key for services for Rohingya Project’s financial and social platform.
