Keeping children learning
We'd like to start by thanking you for your previous donation to the Tekkatho Foundation, and to provide an update on the situation in Myanmar. Currently, all Myanmar schools are closed and due to re-open on July 15.
To keep kids learning, we’ve re-structured key sections of the MyLibrary content to make the transition to home-based learning a little easier. We´re using video lessons, curriculum materials and practice worksheets organised by school-grade for use at home.
We also want to make sure reliable guidance on COVID-19 is delivered quickly to hard-to-reach places that have very limited medical facilities and no internet or phone signal. So, with your support, we’re adding practical tips on masks and hand hygiene (among others), public information posters and videos for children in a dozen Myanmar language, as well as a complete course from John Hopkins University on the science and clinical presentation of COVID-19 and community health interventions such as contact tracing.
Please consider telling your friends and family about our new campaign for World Refugee Week by sharing the link to our GlobalGiving project on social media, or just bring us up in conversation. GlobalGiving will match donations made by June 30th: https://www.globalgiving.org/projects/help-us-provide-refugees-in-myanmar-an-education/
If you have any questions about the eTekkatho MyLibrary project, or about our work, please do get in touch with us. Thank you so much for your continued support! www.tekkatho.foundation
