Challenge

CR started online classes immediately after the schools were shut down in the lockdown, students were encouraged to use either their parents' or neighbors' phone/s to do their classes. They distributed dry ration to the children's families as most of their parents lost their jobs, they supported the families with sanitation kit and basic medicines. Counseling sessions were taken online as most faced a lot of mental issues due to the lockdown/pandemic, career counseling also continued online.

Solution

It will help us to support the educational and other expenses of the children seamlessly.

Long-Term Impact

The children will be able to survive the pandemic and continue their studies without any glitches.
