Keeping Children Healthy & Safe During The Outbreak

A Sportz Village Foundation Position Paper

Over the past few months, the COVID-19 pandemic has forced nations & communities across the globe to reevaluate the existing norms of social behaviors and economic activities. Among others, the education sector has also been majorly impacted by the pandemic and is currently exploring means to adapt to the situation. It is estimated that more than 1.5 billion students of all ages around the world have been affected by the abrupt closure of schools and educational institutions. Children from vulnerable communities are particularly affected because of a sudden loss of livelihood among family members as well as the inaccessibility of digital platforms to continue learning.
