Learning from Home during Covid-19

Since April 13, the children have to study from home.  Like many places, schools have been suspended during the Covid-19 pandemic. The Ministry of Education and Culture with Indonesian Public TV (TVRI) have prepared a daily program to support distance learning and at the same time to help students appreciate Indonesian culture.  The program is an alternative for poorer students who cannot afford computers and fast internet to study from home

This program is from Kindergarten through HS, and benefits both the parents and also teachers. Parents don’t have to look for activities to keep the children busy.  The students can do fun homework and send the answers to their teacher with WhatsApp from a mobile phone.  At the end of the program they will learn about their art and culture.

The schedule is from Monday to Friday. It starts from 8 – 8.30 for the Kindergarten, from 8 to 10.00 for Primary School, 10.30 to 11 for Middle School, and 2 until 2.30 pm for High School.  There is also information about education for the parents and teachers, followed by selected Indonesian movies until evening.

We encourage the mom to accompany the children while they are following the program.

With your donation through GlobalGiving XSProject-XSEducation, we are able to send the children to better public school, so they can be part of Distance Learning. Otherwise they would probably go out picking trash with their parents.

The Community is in good hands during Covid-19 pandemic

Trash pickers are among the most vulnerable people. Their work was already dangerous and susceptible to the corona virus, but they must keep working by collecting trash to survive.

The government has instituted a lock-down of businesses, so there is less trash on the street, and from schools, shops and malls.  But there is now more trash in residential areas, because people are using on-line delivery. The problem is that the trash pickers and trash collectors cannot sell their trash because recycling companies closed

Luckily there is a solution to this difficult problem.  The community has received food donations from several organizations. These donations are urgently needed.  They included rice, eggs, canned meats, and instant noodles.

The community is grateful and thankful for what they have received in this difficult times.  Your generous donations will help us and help them, help the children and their families to get something to fight the virus.

A Little Somthing To Fight The Virus

Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, all schools in Jakarta have closed and children must study from home.  This includes the children at the Cirendeu dump site. Our Primary, Middle School High School and College students are staying at home, with limited source and tools to continue studying from home.

 

Trash pickers are among the most vulnerable people.  There work was already dangerous and susceptible to the corona virus, but they must keep working to survive.  Earning such a low income, they cannot afford the means to protect their family from the virus.

 

Even though they must keep collecting trash, they are now more aware of precautions they need to take concerning Covid-19.  This includes using gloves and masks, and regularly washing their hands.  But because they live in a cramped environment “physical distancing” is difficult, and masks, even if they can be found, are expensive.

 

XSProject is trying to assist by making sure the children have proper food, supplements, and disinfecting soap.  We are also preparing supplies in case there is later a quarantine. We will continue to provide them with fruits, soap, and other simple things alternately That is the least we can do for the children and their families as we realize that finding masks and disenfetand soaps are getting harder to buy, and we want those supplies are for those who need the most, the nurses, the doctors, and hospitals.

 

Your generous donations will help us and help them, help the children and their families to get a little bit something to fight the virus.
