The current Covid19 pandemic that has engulfed the entire world with a death toll of above 271,884 and rising. India too has more than 56,471 detected cases and 1900 deaths so far. Odisha has about 270 reported cases and sadly situation is becoming worse as days passes by. The National Lockdown that was about to end on 14th of April, has been extended till 17th of May. During this lockdown adolescent girls who already faced social lockdown throughout their life are facing even more desperate situation. With all schools and colleges locked down, chances of drop out have increased even more and any possibility of resumption of education has been surrounded by the fear of infection. Under these situations, we are afraid that they might not ever to school again. Normalcy might not bring things normal for them as they might have to face early marriage. To address this uncertainty we are more determined to sensitize people on the need of distance education as an alternative to school education if it fits. Aaina is determined to launch a second chance education initiative for these adolescent girls who are and might drop out from schools.
