"It was the best gift that we could give to our child. Her happiness is beyond words", says the Principal of a rural school in Kochi, after handing over a tablet from ATMA Foundation to his student. Hailing from a poor family who lost much in the flood fury, and were then hit badly by the pandemic, she had no means to attend the online classes that her school was offering.
Even as support was being continually sourced to flood-affected familes to help them get back to normal life, the covid pandemic dealt an even more severe blow. With schools going online, poor families have been struggling to provide material accessories to their school-going children.
School-kits were distributed to 600 children in 11 rural areas. Two tablets and two televisions were provided to 4 children in economically backward situations. Grocery kits were provided to 100 daily-wage workers.
Efforts are on to organise support programmes for children and for families to help them overcome this drastic situation.
