100 Children Get Laptops for Online Education during Covid-19

Laptop Distribution to Underprivileged Girls
Laptop Distribution to Underprivileged Girls

With the Covid-19 pandemic striking the World in alarming proportions, millions of people in India too became jobless overnight due to Nationwide lockdown. With social distancing affecting normal life, educational activities also came to a grinding halt. 


The economically weaker sections of society have like always been the worst hit. With education shifting to online classes, Digital learning is the need of the hour to acquire knowledge and hold the key to a successful career.

However, it is proving very difficult for the poor students due for board exams to cope with the pressures owing to computers being out of reach for them. It is really a sorry state of affairs that in spite of being brilliant and hardworking, they are forced to lag behind in studies due to unavailability of devices to access education. Children from affluent families easily possess smartphones while it is an unimaginable luxury for low income background children. Understanding complex concepts has been next to impossible for them.

In this scenario, their hopes for a better tomorrow are instead threatened with a dark future looming large over their already bleak situation. It is alarming to see more and more incidents of suicide by young students from humble background succumbing to a losing battle of hopelessness.

We took the initiative to distribute refurbished laptops  and new internet dongles to around 40 such families. There are 2 or 3 school going students in each family. It is heartening to know that with the laptops, about 100 children are now enabled to regularly attend their online classes.

 

Education is the right of every child irrespective of which strata of society they belong to. They are our precious future and urgently need our help and support to guide and lead them to their deserving destination.

 

IMPACT: Teachers have informed us that their students have gained immensely and made considerable progress by also taking internal exams successfully.

 

Encouraged by the positive response of the donors and the beneficiaries alike, Prajna Foundation is launching a Laptop Bank Project for the underprivileged. All are invited to support and participate.

Best regards,
