Under normal circumstances, schools would have opened up by this month (July), but the pandemic and the subsequent lockdown protocols have left in-person education in a limbo. Schools have either put a hold on education or move to an online system.
While most schools have adopted the online model so as to ensure children don’t lose touch with academics, online learning is a privilege and is unfortunately one that is not extended to every student across our country. Children from underprivileged backgrounds are at a huge disadvantage as they do not always have the tools necessary to access and engage with online education. A working smartphone and a consistent internet connection are essential for online learning and many in the country are not able to access education due to the lack of the same.
Dribble Academy Foundation has been actively engaging with underprivileged and underserved children and communities from urban slums for over 4 years. They are actively working towards raising funds for their communities to provide them with data-equipped smartphones in order for their students to attend online classes and gain access to the education they deserve.
Your support would mean the world to us- there is no donation too small! All your money will go to supporting children from the Dribble communities in accessing the necessary tools required to continue their education online! Thank you in advance for your kindness and support!
