Help the Rohingya Project create a unique and secure digital identity for 1000 stateless Rohingya using Blockchain technology to access financial services.


Help us Give the Rohingya an Identity!

The Rohingya Project is a grassroots initiative and non-profit social enterprise that aims to uplift and empower the stateless Rohingya diaspora scattered all over the globe (not those in the conflict zone in Myanmar) with the issuance of a digital ID and a blockchain-leveraged financial ecosystem. Having no nationality, many Rohingya cannot enjoy the rights most of us take for granted – legally they don’t exist. 

This Ramadan, we are crowdfunding is for the Pilot Phase of the Rohingya Project. Each contribution goes towards the registration and development of 1,000 digital IDs to be executed from July to December 2019.


The Stateless Rohingya 

There are nearly 3.5 million stateless Rohingya worldwide, many of them are undocumented and facing financial and other hardships. Having no nationality, the Rohingya cannot enjoy the rights most of us take for granted. As a result, the Rohingya face numerous legal, financial and social restrictions.


From Identity to Opportunity

The Rohingya Project is a a grassroots initiative that aims to uplift and empower the Rohingya diaspora scattered across the globe. We aim to flip the narrative of a destitute people that currently dominates the media. The project looks at two key issues to uplift the Rohingya people: Identity and Opportunity. ‘Identity’ relates to the need to digitally register undocumented and other diaspora Rohingya into a central database, the first data on Rohingya census in the world. Individual Rohingya shall have their ancestry authentically identified to link them directly to their original lands of dispersion. 

‘Opportunity’ refers to the need to improve the state of the Rohingya people by providing them meaningful financial avenues after the registration phase. Using their own unique blockchain-based digital identities and crowdfunded resources, Rohingya diaspora communities will be given their chance to improve their own condition. This includes opportunities for vocational training, employment and entrepreneurship to allow the Rohingya to tap into their potential. To tackle the problem of financial exclusion in the Rohingya community. The Rohingya Project aims to unlock the potential of the Rohingya through access to a range of services.

Pilot - Creating 1,000 Digital IDs 


We are raising USD 50,000 to execute the first phase of the project which will create and issue 1,000 digital identity to undocumented Rohingya based mainly in the Rohingya diaspora community in Malaysia, and then provide them with individual digital identities using blockchain technology. Each contribution goes towards the issuance of an ID, the estimated cost of which is USD 50 per ID. The digital identity will be based on Blockchain technology, which is decentralized and cryptographically secure and uniquely fits the Rohingya use case, without uploading sensitive personal data on the public 

In January 2019, Rohingya Project was accepted, along with other non-profits including the Red Cross into the Accelerator Program of the major blockchain identity provider Evernym. The program provides access to an identity system and support to help create a customized Self-Sovereign Identity (SSI) for each client use case, allowing the user control of his or her own private data.
