COVID19 and Girls To Lead Africa: The Home Learning Initiative

Just like the rest of the world, COVID19 had a deep impact on the community of Kanungu and their adolescent girls. GTLA stepped in quickly to take action and provide support to those who needed it most.

Children in Kanungu do not have access to tv, newspapers, internet and the signal reception of radio is too poor rendering online learning nearly impossible.

In July, we implemented a home learning initiative together with a team of teachers who were also rendered redundant due to Covid-19 and closure of schools. 330 total students benefited of that was 245 adolescent girls in P3-P6. We distributed 330 learning booklets to aid the students and the teachers in learning from home.
