Learning Throught the Pandemic!

A good quality education helps children reach their full potential; However, for thousands of children in Northern Uganda its beyond reach and many are not learning due to the government measures to curb down the spread of COVID-19.

All children, of all ages are being affected, in particular by the socio-economic impacts and in some cases, by mitigation measures that may inadvertently do more harm than good.

Moreover, the harmful effects of this pandemic will not be distributed equally. They are expected to be most damaging for children in the poorest neighbourhoods, and for those in already disadvantaged or vulnerable situations.

The potential losses that may accrue in learning for todays young generation, and for the development of their human capital, are hard to fathom. Schools for more than 168 million children globally have been completely closed for almost an entire year due to COVID-19 lockdowns. Even prior to the pandemic, children’s learning was in crisis, and the pandemic has only sharpened these inequalities, hitting schoolchildren in poor countries particularly hard.

Though the government has been quick to implement remote learning, new health protocols and reopening plans, these measures have varied widely based on each family’s wealth and the capacity of the schools. Since most families have lost their sources of income due to the pandemic, they can’t afford the tablets, laptops, Television sets as well as radios to access lessons. The schools too don’t have the capacity to acquire these online teaching gadgets since there are not readily available funds!
