Most of the children and young people who attend the projects offered by Institute Oswaldo Ribeiro de Mendonca has only one mobile device in their houses and this device is used by the entire family for work. For this reason, during the pandemic, these kids and teenagers don't have access to online classes of their schools and IORM's projects. The access to online classes is vital to ensure the continuity of the learning process.
The internet access through mobile devices is not appropriate for students for so many reasons. Mobile phones have small screens, the device model doesn't have enough storage space for the videos, and mostly requires credits top up for cellular functions, which can be a challenge for the families, and the quality of the connection can limit what kind of content could be accessed. When a student has a low quality of the internet, they get limited information due to low-speed internet.
There's an appropriate way to help the needs of each student. There are some houses where the Wi-Fi access would be enough to bring internet and online classes to the student, in other cases, our campaign must bring to the student the equipment and internet access. It's 260 students that need your support.
The Institute Oswaldo Ribeiro de Mendonca - IORM is launching the campaign to ensure that the students of social projects in arts, culture and sports fields have access to the internet. Guarantee Internet to every child and young people is one cause of education and the entire community. To support the campaign donate any amount to the IORM.
