COVID 19 has had a dramatic effect on access to education in India.

COVID 19 has had a dramatic effect on access to education in India. India has recorded the highest average of new  cases anywhere in the world.  The surge of infections has overwhelmed the already fragile health care system to the point of collapse.  India is seeing an average of over 2000 deaths per day with close to 16 million recorded cases.  Many more cases are unrecorded and the situation is truly desperate for many people in need.

Food is given to desperate families who cannot find work or buy food due to Covid

The surge in COVID infections has impacted availability of work and therefore food security.

The surge in COVID infections has impacted availability of work and therefore food security.  With much of India hovering on total lockdown, day workers who earn their daily food with each days wages, have little or no food for their families.  Families are just trying to survive and there is no money for education.  Education is one of the most unlikely costs to be met by parents struggling to feed their families every day through the pandemic.

Working together on a foldscope project

This combination of factors has meant that parents are having great difficulty paying the modest fees for educational supplies, teachers and support staff.  Although our students have been continuously studying and are still e-enrolled and learning in an excellent environment, school fees generally not being paid by hard hit working parents. We provide educational scholarships to the most deserving of underserved children.

Imagine a world where there was no hope of education to relieve the burden of the cycle of poverty!

Imagine a world where there was no hope of education to relieve the burden of the cycle of poverty!  The applications for scholarships we receive flow out of that cycle of poverty. Now imagine that we can all help, just a little, to relieve that burden and create hope and joy.  Your donation of a full or partial scholarship can defeat the cycle of poverty and create a new cycle of hope and joy for underserved rural kids even during COVID-19.
