Due to the outbreak of COVID-19, education sector partners do not have direct access to children in the camps. But, some of the International Non-Governmental Organizations (INGOs) and Non-Governmental Organizations (NGOs) in Bangladesh have started offering education online: ‘Home School’ is one of them. This article aims to understand – to what extent and how does home school learning creates new knowledge on Rohingya children and improve the sustainability of Rohingyas in the camps during pandemic Covid-19? To get this answer, this study applied a qualitative research strategy to evaluate the impact of online education (Home Education) on the sustainable livelihood of Rohingya refugees in Bangladesh. The respondents were selected purposively. Data was collected through semi-structured interviews with 20 Rohingya refugee children (10 each from boys and girls) and key informant interviews with education providers including the head of the BRAC education sector and four teachers who conduct online education in the camps. Data analysis was accomplished through conversation analysis. Conversation analysis benefits researchers by taking common interactions between respondents as broadly as possible. The findings suggest that despite some drawbacks, home education learning contributed significantly to ensure the sustainable livelihood of Rohingya refugees in Bangladesh.
