Because Every Child Deserves a Chance
EwB'S RESPONSE TO COVID 19
Schools and EwB programming ceased on 18 March 2020 and between that date and the start of the LockDown (LD), the EwB (SA) Management Committee (“Manco”) put in place systems to allow for remote working.
EwB is concerned for the health and well-being of its staff, tutors, volunteers and learners as well as with the learning gap that the LD will create. However, there is consideration that, given the unprecedented impact of this virus, there exists a responsibility for a broader community engagement .
EwB (SA)’s Manco will continue to receive their salaries and tutors, their stipends, during the LD period. The site coordinators will contact their learners and their families to assess their needs.
Education without Borders provides educational opportunities for disadvantaged and at-risk children through initiatives in South Africa and Canada, including after-school support programs in Math, English, Science, school leadership and youth mentorship.
