THE CHALLENGE

Ensuring access to education for all children is a universal priority and one of the UN's Sustainable Development Goals: SDG4. Owing to the Covid-19 pandemic, schools across the world were obliged to close and transition, as best they could, to online education, providing children with remote learning. However, countless children have been deprived of education owing to the digital divide: lacking the necessary IT infrastructure, such as computers and Internet connection, and lacking digitally competent teachers, many schools were unable to offer their pupils online education. Tragically, the pandemic has had a catastrophic impact on the education of countless children around the world. Given that an estimated 90% or more of future jobs will require at least basic digital skills, it is all the more crucial that children have the opportunity to learn foundational computer skills as early as possible. In the village of Pochanpur, near New Delhi, many children were deprived of education when the schools closed owing to the pandemic, since their lack of an IT infrastructure made it impossible to offer remote education. The situation was further worsened by the fact that many families lost their jobs during the pandemic and could no longer afford to pay for their children's school fees.

The SOLUTIONS WE'RE PROPOSING

It is essential to ensure that children enjoy their right to education during and after the pandemic. Providing children with quality education, including training in digital skills, is also crucial in our digital age—not least because countries around the world are relying on IT-enabled, remote education to prevent children from missing out on their education during the pandemic. W4 is proud to partner with Women in Tech, Willow Thrive and HER Digital Academy to support a program in India that aims to equip a local elementary school with computers in order to protect children’s right to quality education, including digital skills education. The goal of the program is to equip an elementary school, the Winnerz Public School, in the village of Pochanpur in the outskirts of New Delhi with a computer lab and to fund computer science classes for a class of 35 children, ages 5 and 6, in order to offer the children a digital education from an early age. The Winnerz Public School caters also to children from low-income migrant families, offering services that are adapted to the needs of migrant families and children, in order to defend the right of migrant children to education and to promote the children’s social inclusion.

THE IMPACT OF YOUR GIVING

100% of your donation will contribute to equipping the elementary school in Pochanpur with urgently needed computers and software, enabling vulnerable, migrant children, aged 5-6 years, to continue their education and to learn essential basic computer skills. Your giving will ensure that the children do not miss out on their education, that they are protected from social dangers such as child labor and exploitation, and that they have the opportunity to acquire basic computer knowledge and skills. Given the highly vulnerable situation of migrant families during the pandemic, as families are unable to work and lose vital income, your giving will enable the school to continue offering the children crucial education. This will help lay the foundations for the children’s successful education in the longer-term, it will foster the children’s social inclusion, and it will have a highly positive impact on the children’s overall development, improving their life prospects. Find out more about the project here:
