This project will allow 51 boys and girls who work on the street to continue with their basic education and develop technological skills in a safe space. They do not have access to technology to access online education and are at risk of dropping out of school. To support them, we will provide academic monitoring and access to technology in three groups in our day centre. It is here the construction of a decent future begins - let's give access to education and technology.
Schools closed in March due to the pandemic and will foreseeably remain closed until a vaccine is available. It has caused unemployment and economic decline in the families' income, and the children don't have access to technology which impede their ability to study. Those who are forced to go working on the streets are in constant, direct contact with other people and so directly exposed to contracting the virus. They don't count with sanitary conditions to prevent the spread of the virus.
This project guarantees the exercise of the right to education and technology to 51 children. It protects children and adolescents from being part of the "lost generation" as a result of COVID-19. Families working in the informal sector will be supported by this project to protect them and to promote their children's right to education, which in the long term is the best way for them to access a dignified life.
