The second wave of the pandemic has drastically affected the access to education for tribal children in Coimbatore and Karamadai, pushing them towards child labor. Native Medicare Charitable Trust is supporting 200 tribal children by providing home schooling, nutritional meals and necessary health & hygiene kits for a period of 10 months at the cost of ₹1,600 per child per month.
The schools have been closed since March 2020 due to Corona Pandemic. In the absence of schools, Tribal children tend to go along with their parents for any agriculture and daily wage work which lead to child labor. They do not have access for online class room facility which resulted in their gap in education. Unless we take care of these children, the continuity of their education will not be ensured. Education cannot be neglected in these areas because they are already far behind the mainstream education. Corona pandemic is a reality and we must act, accepting the reality, rather than thinking about everything will be back to normal and only aim at status quo. The new-age problems need to be addressed differently to meet the emerging new normal and hence new-age solutions should also be implemented to ensure quality education in the Tribal areas. Overall project objective –
Ø To create an Educational opportunity among 200 tribal children to continue the formal education during and after COVID-19 pandemic
