A Direct Report from GoPhil partner Vikalp Sansthan. (4-minute reading time)
Vikalp staff responded immediately to vulnerable communities during the complete lockdown in India. While responding to the community with essential groceries including masks, soap, and sanitary pads, Vikalp has also noticed that school-aged children including boys and girls were busy doing nothing except household, farm work, and cattle grazing because the schools were closed for unknown periods. Parents were worried about their studies. They were looking for the platforms with the support of which children could continue their studies. So, the idea of setting up Learning Centers came under deep analysis in view of the urgent community need. That is why Vikalp decided to open learning and education centers in the rural villages to end child marriage, child labor, and school drop-outs.
