Trying to move online with our education chapters

The same as everyone, we’ve been struggling to try and have a digital transformation of our social work in the slums for our education chapters, it’s been beyond challenging, in some of our chapters less than 40% of our students have access to the internet.

That was fruitful for some of our students who could, …

The neighborhoods where our classes are held are some of the most vulnerable (economically speaking) to the recession brought on by this invisible enemy. This is true for all of our Education Chapters all over the world: India, South Africa, Costa Rica, El Salvador, Brazil and Colombia. Our student’s families …
