One of the worst affected victims of the pandemic are children who now have no access to schools. While a lot of children have the means for online classes, underprivileged children are still deprived of learning as they have no access to computers or smart phones. These children already have had difficult journeys, having fought the shackles of poverty, child labour, and much more to finally reach school. But the pandemic has reversed their years of struggle. For lakhs of such children, education has come to a halt.


The biggest question for these children and their families is -
WILL THE PANDEMIC BE AN END TO THEIR DREAMS?


As the phased reopening of schools starts after nearly two years, will these children get back to school? Or will they be forced to drop out and return to the dreaded reality of child labour and early marriage? Join hands with Smile Foundation and Big FM to ensure that #ShikshaNaRuke – education does not stop for any child!
