But, it still feels like we've gone back in time where education has become an urgency amidst the pandemic.
If it was bad, it's become even worse.
The people have been jobless for the entire year, and due to the current ongoing Pandemic in India, they will be COMPLETELY BROKEN; the education of their children is at stake.
Who are we?
I am Ujval and got associated with hamari pehchan NGO with the means of our school. The NGO has been running many initiatives to help people in these times. Gadgetshala is one such initiative that has been providing access to education to the poor and unprivileged who are struggling to educate themselves during the lockdown. We managed to distributed over 11,215 gadgets to the needy since the first lockdown hit.
Who do we help?
Since the first lockdown, we have been taking care of over 11,000 families in the slums of India. Since most residents of slums are migrants, daily wage workers, rickshaw drivers, rag pickers etc.- they are all unemployed and unable to afford basic education for their children at the moment.
And as the pandemic continues, so does the lockdown on their education. Without having a source of income or opportunity to earn, these children are absolutely helpless and rely completely on us for their education.
What do we do?
To ensure the education does not gets affected, Gadgetshala is distributing education kits. The education kit consists of providing:
1) Internet connection
2) Wi-fi router
3) Smart gadget like mobile phones, computers, laptops,etc
5) A set of notebooks
6) Geometry Kits
Our aim is to educate as many children as possible through education kits.
We're expanding our efforts as it's the need of the hour. Because as the pandemic persists, so does their education. Please keep supporting and help us educate those who can't educate themselves.
What we need from you?
A humble request to share this fundraiser link with as many people as possible and donate anything which is possible for you so that we can support the education of more children.
