The COVID-19 pandemic is impacting learning for all children with more than 1.5B students around the globe experiencing school closures.
However, the crisis has particularly dire consequences for the education of children in households that are already in precarious economic situations and don't have the resources to rapidly adapt to distance learning. Therefore, the children on the wrong side of the digital divide stand to experience the most severe educational consequences in the long run.
Organizations that have been on the front lines of serving under resourced children have suddenly found it difficult or nearly impossible to maintain their current level service due to the crisis.
Now more than ever, these organizations play a crucial role in preventing the educational disruption of the most vulnerable families. To quickly return to their service models, they need targeted financial and technical support to adapt their strategies and transition to online methods.
With the support of Google.org, INCO launched the INCO Education Accelerator to ensure that the most vulnerable children have access to a high-quality education. This program is funded as part of Google.org's global initiative, the Distance Learning Fund.
This emergency program is tailored for nonprofit organizations and includes both financial support and an online acceleration program. INCO, in partnership with experts in distance learning, will provide grantees with the technical assistance necessary to digitize their activities and provide equitable access to education for children with the greatest needs.
We know that we are facing an unprecedented global challenge. The organizations on the front line, serving the most vulnerable, are facing this global challenge head on. One child at a time. One family at a time. This is why INCO is working with nonprofits that provide direct educational support services in Italy, France, Greece, Spain, Turkey, China, Indonesia, Hong Kong and The Philippines.
