Shadhika's Covid-19 Emergency Response

Summary

As the Coronavirus continues to spread throughout the world, Shadhika is in close conversation with our grantee partners about how the pandemic is impacting the young women we support. It is clear that our young women are in need, so Shadhika is launching a Covid-19 Emergency Response Fund to provide rapid, flexible, financial support to our grantee partners so they can take action to ensure the young women we support are taken care of during this crisis.

Challenge

It is clear that this virus is not impacting us all equally. Those that are poor, are migrant workers or day laborers, who live in crowded slum communities, those without reliable running water, are all at higher risk - not only for the virus, but for hunger and domestic violence. Girls in India may be at the highest risk of all. When food is scarce, girls eat last. When family members fall ill, girls are tasked with care giving. When schools are closed, girls' education often ceases.

Solution

Because of this, Shadhika is launching a Covid-19 Emergency Response Fund to provide rapid, flexible, financial support to our grantee partners so they can take action to ensure the young women we support are taken care of during this crisis. The Fund will serve to cover the costs of food, sanitation and medical supplies, mental health counseling, distance learning tools (laptops/ tablets, internet, and video conferencing), school supplies, emergency lodging, as well as other items.

Long-Term Impact

A donation of any amount can help make sure the young women we support remain safe and stay healthy during this crisis, and that, when the pandemic subsides, they are able to return to school and thrive.
