Room to Read COVID-19 ‘Emergency Appeal’


Sheargold Foundation has contributed $10,000 towards the Room to Read 'Emergency Appeal' to help respond to the impacts of COVID-19 on the students Room to Read supports.
The COVID-19 pandemic is having a huge impacts on student learning across the world, but students in low-income areas will be the most negatively affected. In these countries, governments have been less able to provide remote learning opportunities and guidance to teachers to address student learning needs during the crisis.
Room to Read’s new distance learning programs are serving as an essential lifeline to the world’s most vulnerable children. To facilitate learning in this environment, Room to Read provides human connectivity via the channels that are most accessible to low-income children, including telephone, radio and TV broadcasts, as well as text messaging and the distribution of hard copies of educational materials
