“While temporary school closures as a result of health and other crises are not new unfortunately, the global scale and speed of the current educational disruption is unparalleled and, if prolonged, could threaten the right to education.” UNESCO Director-General Audrey Azoulay.
Kamlin Neqraw is an initiative launched by Volunteer in Morocco and the Dutch foundation CULTINED, on the 12th of April. Its goal was to provide the less fortunate from young Moroccan students in the Tangier-Tetouan-Al Hoceima region with electronics. That is, in the hopes of guaranteeing the continuity of their education.
One of the project coordinators told MWN, “Our goal is to facilitate the continuity of education for all through remote learning. We’re targeting youngsters with fewer opportunities, mainly living in the rural areas, who do not have a device like a smartphone or laptop to participate in distance education.”
This ambitious initiative has gained traction since its first release. Now, a growing number of local teachers are involved in the project. Thus, helping with the identification of those most affected, and those lacking the necessary equipment to continue their remote learning.
Volunteer in Morocco also initiated a crowdfunding campaign asking people to donate money, phones, tablets, and computers, whether it be new or used.
