As an immediate measure to curb the spread of Covid-19, most educational institutions in India have been shut since March, operating only through online classes. But what does this mean for students from poorer sections who do not have access to high-speed internet and basic equipment like laptops, tablets, or smartphones?
It is heartbreaking that the destruction caused by Covid-19 is affecting the future of India’s children, where a student is deprived of education solely because he or she does not have access to a smartphone, tablet, laptop, or a computer to attend online classes.
How Right To Live is helping?
Right To Live has a history of being the first responder to any crisis that adversely affects children or their community. We recognize the social gap in access to technology that exists and attempt to bridge this gap through our Digital Device Donation Drive.
Through our E-learning campaign across 12 government high schools in Karnataka, we have identified 200 students who do not have the means to procure devices that aid in imparting education. These promising and bright students hail from poor economic backgrounds and buying a digital device is a luxury that their families cannot afford, leading to the very harsh reality of increased dropouts.
We at Right To Live are doing all we can to curb the increase of dropouts in these government schools, and for that, we need you.
You can help us by sponsoring a digital device for them to use. Remember, this simple device can open the doors of knowledge for a child and transform their families’ lives.
Every little contribution matters – Donate Now!
You will be pleased to know that 100% of your donation goes to the procurement of new/refurbished devices. We do not use any part of donations for admin expenses since those costs are covered by our trustees. So, please come forward and lend a helping hand to educate poor and ambitious students.
Your contribution can and will make a significant difference in a child’s life.
