A Multi-pronged Approach

School Closures: A Multi-Pronged Approach

We join this interview between GC-DWC’s research associate Hannah Chandler and Janella Nelson, a Senior Education Advisor for ChildFund International. Janella discusses issues that lie at the intersection of child protection and education and elaborates upon the need for a multi-pronged approach to distance learning during COVID-19.

In addition to the learning efforts mentioned in the interview, ChildFund is providing health supplies and equipment (protective gear) to Ministry of Health facilities, installing community handwashing stations, and distributing hygiene materials. They are also distributing food to children who had meals at school and plan on distributing cash transfers for people to purchase essential goods.
