Summary

Direction Digital is a project focused in digital inclusion primarily for girls in Brazil. It enables continuing development of new school teachers in educational digital technologies, community orientation and resources to families in remote areas to have access to education digitally, specially after COVID-19. Funds will provide resources deployed to families with girls from 04 to 14 years old, food and school supplies for the most vulnerable students and develop monitors as village leaders.

Challenge

During the pandemic, 72% of the students stop frequenting schools, and almost 9 million students had zero education activity for more than 3 months. The biggest challenge the education system is facing is lack of resources and capabilities to provide remote education and digital inclusion. Minimal infrastructure, limited interne access and scarcity of portable devices are key areas of immediate support required to maintain suboptimal education in remote areas.

Solution

Focusing in families with two or more girls in very remote areas, APUSA aims to create conditions for transformation from the traditional teaching process to a process inserted in the digital culture, through the continuous training of public school teachers and the socialization of digital technologies that enable access to applications that contribute to the learning process. Other minimal resources for the families to maintain their kids at school are required to tackle the problems.

Long-Term Impact

The project has the potential to bring over 300 girls back to school and enable 60 families across several rural areas for digital inclusion, orientation and resources to initiate on remote education. The continued education and enablement of these teachers and students impacts on 20% of the kids for the Santo Antonio region being back to school.
