In 2020, Covid Pandemic started in India and since then it has not only taken away lakhs of lives and livelihood but has also adversely affected the children across India. Education acts as the catalyst of Socio-economic improvement of the country has been badly hit. The schools are closed almost since last one year and online education has become the sole mode to continue education.
However, due to lack of adequate digital infrastructural support, the children of remote areas cannot get regular access to online education facilities. Financial inability and lack of digital literacy among the parents also act as great hindrance. This can lead to increase in dropout rate and child labour among underprivileged communities.
Considering above factors, SEED with the support of Nalgora Bandhu Paribar and Nagora Nalgora Ramkrishna Sevashram has started temporary Education Centers in remote rural areas of South 24 Parganas district West Bengal. The centers are being run maintaining physical distance and safety measures so that their education is not hampered even during this pandemic situation.
