About the Campaign

Access to education has always been a challenge for under-privileged children. However, due to the pandemic, as livelihoods were affected and many families were further pushed into poverty, lesser-privileged children suffered the most.

Schools were closed, education shifted online and economic vulnerability forced many children to compromise on their education and drop out of school to engage in menial labour.

The impact of the pandemic has been deep and long lasting. While privileged children could go back to school, under-privileged children have been struggling to get their lives back to normal. Coping with the expenses of the new online mode of learning has also posed as a challenge for many.

Therefore, to ensure education for all, our campaign ‘Shiksha Na Ruke’ aims not only at bringing drop out children back to school but also in enabling uninterrupted learning for children through access to resources needed for their education.
