- 50% of the kids studying in govt. schools do not have a smartphone at home
- 25% of the kids who even have a smartphone have network problems and hence, mobile internet is not able to uninterrupted video calls
- Some kids who even have smartphone as well as internet connection get access to the smartphone for a limited time as the phone belongs to their father who needs the phone most of the times. Even in the free time, the phone has to be shared with siblings
Due to these conditions, the learning for govt. schools kids has come to a halt. Basis more research, wherever schools have closed for 4-5 months in the past (e.g., Somalia and African countries during Ebola), the learning level of kids depreciated and it took them 6 months – 1 year to come back to their earlier learning levels.
To prevent such a situation, Books For All is aiming to deliver books to kids at their home. In the first phase, we are aiming to deliver 10,000 books and the objective of the first campaign is to raise funds (atleast 3 lakhs) for the same.
