COVID-19 has created many new challenges in education. Nehemiah Gateway's schools in Albania have risen to the challenge. The teams at Amaro Tan and Nehemia School had to make quite a few adjustments to maintain socially distanced classrooms. Desks were cut in half and re-welded as single desks (picture below). Class groups were split to maintain mandated group sizes, with half the students in remote locations, watching their teachers online. [The new laptops helped make this possible!] Temperatures are taken every day before school.
Nehemiah Gateway University had to grapple with even stricter government regulations. All universities were mandated to move online this fall. This measure was designed for institutions where 200 person lectures are the norm-- and where most of the students are from the area where they are studying. Student-teacher time (pictured above) helped keep lessons real at NGU and provided more a chance for interaction for international students who are far from home.
Donations like yours helped make these required adjustments, so that our teachers could adapt and our students of all ages could keep on learning. Thank you!
