Summary

Many of our student's family members have lost jobs and are unable to afford food to feed their family or soap to wash their hands- an essential aspect of preventing the spread of COVID-19. We work closely with local NGOs and local government to ensure those in need get the essentials. Freedom to Learn has set up this emergency fund to supply families with vital resources during the COVID-19 crisis. We will be supplying families with food packages and vital resources during this testing time.

Challenge

Our student's families are now unable to work or go to school. More than 80% of our student's families rely on daily wages to provide food, sanitary equipment, medicine, clothes and educational supplies, which they now cannot access. Our teachers have been in touch with every student since the COVID-19 Lockdown began learning that some families have not even been able to afford soap - and absolute essential item during the pandemic.

Solution

With the funds you donate our team will be able to supply essential packages for families most in need in Kushadevi and the surrounding areas. The packages will provide vital equipment for families to survive the coming weeks due to COVID-19. Our team will asses each family on their individual needs and ensure they get the support needed. Your donations will enable provision of: Food packages; Seeds to grow food; Hygiene packs; Education packs.

Long-Term Impact

By offering support to families in need we will save lives. Nepal's economy has already been hugely impacted by COVID-19. The fear of mass famine across Nepal is rising amongst local communities as they begin to see the effects of Lockdown play out - with questions being raised over which is the higher risk - Lockdown or contracting COVID-19. This emergency relief will ease the pressure for families so that complying to Lockdown rules and staying safe from COVID-19 remains possible.
