A Different Kind of Start to the School Year


In Guayaquil, the new school year has begun. But all classes have been moved online.

In spite of the corona restrictions, the lessons can take place in a different form. This is actually good news. However, it presents many families with great challenges.

Every child needs a computer or a mobile phone to be able to follow the lessons. With 3 to 4 children in different grades all talking to their teachers at the same time, it is impossible to understand one's own word in the small huts. That is why our team has prepared a small school kit for the children: a few notebooks, pens and headphones, so that they can concentrate on following the lessons.
