The Consulate General of Israel to South India in partnership with The Art of Living organization will provide underprivileged school children in rural Karnataka and Tamil Nadu with 100 tablets for distance learning.
The Art of Living stated that the Covid-19 has forced schools to switch to distance learning and children in rural areas have limited internet access compared to the urban areas.
The Consul General Jonathan Zadka said that online learning will reach marginalised students from vulnerable communities and help them a lot.
The partnership aims to enable teachers to lend support to these students and bridge the literacy gaps. The Consulate looks forward to assisting students with limited resources to navigate this academic year.
