Summary

According to UNESCO, 24,901,925 students in Turkey have been affected by school closures due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Education is being provided through online distance learning platforms and access to a computer at home is a prerequisite to use these platforms. However, only 40% of disadvantaged students have a computer at home in Turkey. Therefore, CYDD started a campaign to provide computers to disadvantaged students who are already getting scholarship from CYDD.

Challenge

CYDD conducted a survey with its scholarship students and seen that 60% of CYDD scholars who are socio-economically disadvantaged do not have access to a computer. These students are at risk of falling behind in their education. Online distance learning due to the COVID-19 pandemic amplifies the existing inequalities in education.

Solution

If we can provide computers to socio-economically disadvantaged students, they can continue their education. Furthermore, by using these computers, CYDD will continue to reach students and their families during the COVID-19 pandemic and support them with different projects such as teaching them 21st-century skills, mentoring, educating parents, etc.

Long-Term Impact

COVID-19 pandemic reminded us of the importance of technology .Even though pandemic will be over one day, role of technology will not decrease in our lives. By providing computers to students, we open doors to new opportunities for them. In today's world, having a formal education is not enough. Students should know the skills of the 21st century, and digital literacy is one of them. Without access to a computer, they cannot reach the level of their socio-economically advantaged peers
