DISHA – BANDIPUR
The pandemic has changed how millions around the globe are to be educated.
Every single day of school counts.
This year, school closures due to COVID-19
have impacted the learning of 247 million children in India.
The year 2020-21, posed huge challenges to humanity, the spread of the pandemic COVID 19, has caused widespread panic, and is affecting quality of life for everybody. The pandemic has changed how millions around the globe are to be educated. Educational establishments are being challenged with finding the answers to provide continuity for education for children.
Given the digital divide and lack of access to technology-enabled education, many children will be denied education and could widen equality gaps. Even more, with schools closed for over 18 months, there are significant learning gaps and learning losses which needs attention as we get ready for the schools to reopen.
In order to combat the current situation it requires collective Knowledge, Experience and Wisdom to find meaningful solutions to the challenges. We at Kshiti Foundation, have collaborated with leading academic scholars, educationists to create solutions which will help to deliver education through well trained Facilitators at the community. We call this initiative DISHA – Bandipur
