Challenge

The surge in Covid-19 cases in India has once again placed cities under lockdown. Studies report ~45% loss of household income, especially for the most vulnerable communities. This loss of livelihood is hampering access to food and other essentials. With no access to schools, Teach For India's 28,000 students are facing an immediate risk of learning loss. This project aims to address these challenges, to ensure that our communities have access to basic needs and our children continue to learn.

Solution

This project will - 1. Provide food rations and urgent financial support for medical and other essential resources to our Students' families that have lost their livelihood 2. Provide for an emergency medical fund for Students and Fellows directly affected by Covid-19 3. Enable students to access Blended Learning by providing them a learning device and access to internet 4. Cover the testing and vaccine costs for our Staff and Fellows that directly work with Students and their communities

Long-Term Impact

Loss of livelihood, emergency medical expenses & disrupted academic development have the potential to push families into a life of poverty. Teach For India aims to provide its Students with quality education and excellent opportunities that will enable them to live a successful and sustainable life. The economic challenges that this pandemic brings, has the potential to disrupt the future of our children. This initiative aims to support communities till they are able to get back on their feet.
