Whereas an unprecedented number of children and young people are no longer attending schools or universities because of COVID-19, the Foundation has decided to respond urgently to the appeal of Synlab, a partner NGO, to strengthen its e-platform to support teachers in distance education in the context of the COVID-19 emergency containment.
The donation will enable Synlab to temporarily expand its team and mobilize a pedagogical task force to accompany for a month thousands of teachers who requested support and impact positively hundreds of thousands of students.
This task force will be in charge of :
– Organizing two daily exchange sessions for teachers and school heads.
– Producing and distributing 10 video tutorials, toolkits and a practical guide on the key themes of this pedagogical continuity and the link with parents.
– Organizing a permanent hotline accessible from morning to evening which will allow each teacher to discuss their specific situation with experienced teachers.
Target: 200,000 teachers and 3,000 head teachers.
This donation is fully in line with the Education Chapter of the Foundation and is a concrete response to an immediate problem posed by the confinement.
