HELP CHILDREN BACK TO SCHOOL TOGETHER

date_range2021-09-10
As you may have already seen on social media, children in many cities across Vietnam are participating in their “Back to school” ceremonies online. They are starting a school year that no one knows for sure how it will turn out.
Nevertheless, as much as having online ceremonies and subsequently online classes is an outcome that most people won’t prefer, it is in fact a privilege at the moment.
Because as a charity, we know that, out there, hundreds of thousands or even millions of children are in families that are devastated by the pandemic, and how to find a smartphone to take part in today’s ceremony is the least of their concern right now. What they are probably worried about is what to put in their stomach for dinner tonight, or maybe whether they should skip dinner altogether and go to sleep to try to forget about the hunger.
94% of the children we help don’t have a laptop
Disruptions in education increase inequality for children who cannot afford vital learning tools like a computer, social insurance, textbooks, or Internet access.
Prolonged school closures will lead to a crisis in children’s development and mental wellbeing.
Online learning only works when children know how to learn online and how to stay safe online.
Together, we can keep children learning safely throughout the pandemic:
  • US$30 can help one child get a “back to school” package (stationery, health insurance, uniform) and training on online learning and online safety).
  • US$60 can provide a data package to help a child get Internet access for one full year + training on online learning and online safety.
  • US$120 can provide a child with a smartphone + training on online learning and online safety.
  • US$300 can provide a child with a tablet + “back to school” package + training on online learning and safety.
