Ever since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic, India has been hit extremely hard.
Moreover, the Delta Plus variant led to disastrous repercussions. To this day, India has registered more than 36 million cases of COVID-19 and 469 thousand deaths.
Because of this and in order to reduce cases, the Government decided to shut down schools in March 2020, leading millions of children without classes. Lessons began being broadcast on television and online, however in the poorest regions of India millions of children do not have access to it. In September 2021, a survey showed only 8% of students were studying online regularly and 38% of students were not studying at all.
Taking this into account and with the help of donors and partners, ANDI opened a tuition centre where children can study with the help and support of ANDI monitors.
ANDI’s local team ensures that all health and hygiene measures are strictly observed making sure that children and their families have all the necessary conditions to succeed in their programmes.
The ANDI tuition centre ensures children and their families have access to books, school supplies and any other materials needed for children and young adults to help fulfil their right to education and to help break the cycle of poverty in India.
