We have been living under the cloud of the COVID-19 pandemic since March 2020. For students and teachers blindsided by immediate school closures and thrust into distance learning, the home became the classroom. Chromebooks and hotspots became the educational supplies most in need as students completed their studies and the 2020 school year in the face of incredibly challenging times. Through your generosity, we were able to help many school children continue their studies by supplying these distance-learning tools.
As we move through summer and into the new 2020-2021 academic year with few answers and fewer resources, the urgency for disaster relief continues as much now as ever. We wonder how students and teachers will transition back to school. We wonder what the schools they’ll be returning to will look like? Every day will be a day of discovery.
We do know that classrooms will take on new shapes and sizes, and that learning will not be confined to the four walls of the classroom and bell schedules that move hundreds or thousands of students along.
And we know that the needs for new normal learning will be greater than ever—urgent and costly. This, in the face of deep budget cuts in response to COVID-19 health and economic impacts on already underfunded educational systems.
We are facing a health crisis and its disastrous effects on school districts worldwide, especially those serving underprivileged children. Yours Humanly is steadfast and will continue to raise funds to provide the distance learning tools and technologies, educational supplies, and critical resources needed to create safe and productive classrooms and school experiences for children in need as they move through recovery in the new normal learning environment.
Please give today and help us help the children most in need during these difficult and uncertain times. We will be there for them—and we ask you to join us.
