In and out of school

As the pandemic continued throughout the end of the last year and the beginning of the new one, the general idea in the education system was that it would be safer to keep the schools closed to protect the children, the teachers and everyone around them. Although school started in normal circumstances, the situation quickly changed and children were facing again the screens and monitors from home in the online education activities. That was the case for the lucky ones, though, because most of the children that we work with come from families that can’t afford to buy a laptop or a tablet, let alone a device for each child. It was therefore a priority for us to try to help these children get in contact with their schools and teachers to be able to attend the online courses and to ensure they have devices and knowledge to participate in education.

With help from the local community we managed to purchase 70 tablets that were distributed to the children. They then attended in groups of up to ten children in our educational centers to learn how to use the tablets and get accustomed with the platforms the schools provided. At the same time we helped them to keep up with the rest of their colleagues, by providing educational assistance for their assignments.

All this time, we also tried to maintain a close connection with the children living outside of Iasi, too, by visiting them individually at home and distributing educational materials (on paper) that they could use in their own pace.

Only in the past couple of weeks schools opened again and we are now, at least for a while, able to see groups of children. Hopefully, we will be able to do this until the end of the school year.
