Feature: Background story on co-founders
Updated: Feb 21, 2019
Our founders were interviewed by The Everyday People of Singapore
Project Rohingya Sisu's founders, Ayesha and Darshita (pictured above) sat down for a chat with the writer behind The Everyday People of Singapore.
In the interview, they explain what PRS is about and what the initiative aims to do for the children living in the Unchiprang camp for Rohingya refugees in Bangladesh.

Some snippets from the interview:
Darshita: But for me, I’ve always believed that if you felt passionately about a cause, you should do something about it. Don’t just say you care but do nothing. Action speaks volumes. I’ve always been drawn to issues of conflict involving refugees, so that’s why I continue to do the work that I do.
Ayesha: And because we raised funds to provide raincoats for the children, the rest of the funds are now being used to pay the remuneration of counselling sessions for selected children – children who are showing signs of developing PTSD. The funding will last for the next two years.
Thank you @everydaypeoplesg for the interview and for taking such a great shot of our co-founders.
