Why “Offline Learning Kits”?
All their lives, our rural children in India have associated learning with school, teacher, books and a blackboard. To overnight switch to a phone, a virtual class on apps they aren’t familiar with, homework on WhatsApp - the experience of remote-learning could be both confusing and challenging for them. Hence, its effectiveness on grass-root levels remains a big question. Our team took a short survey in July 2020 across eight of our partner villages and found that more than 50% rural children have no access to any form of online education during Covid-19.
