During the pandemic, when all the schools were shut underprivileged children suffered the most. After two years of struggle, schools have finally resumed properly. But many children have never returned to school. One of the biggest reasons was that these children dropped out when the schools were shut. Some of them were not able to attend online classes because of no access to digital devices. Others were married off or involved in child labour to ease the financial burden at their homes. The situation worsened for girls. Education for girls in many parts of India is still not a priority.
The gap of two years in structured learning spaces has made it very difficult for children to be interested in studies. It is the need of the hour to focus on children’s education in the coming years. We at CRY are working towards providing important tools and resources to get children in India ready to go back to school.
We are working hard to reconnect children with their education and make them confident that they can cope with the learning gap. CRY has been conducting study sessions to supplement learning with digital devices, providing exposure to useful skills, conducting enrollment initiatives, conducting interactive activities, holding awareness campaigns for parents and providing guidance and career counselling.
