Education and COVID-19 Response
EAA is committed to support schools and communities that continue with a home learning plan during this crisis through:
Internet Free Education Resource Bank with engaging educational projects that can be completed with no technology requirements in low-resourced homes for self-lead learning.
E-Resources: Developed a list of vetted, free e-resources available in 8 different languages. These are lists of free resources that can be accessed to continue learning. This has been developed in partnership with EAA partners.
Digital School Program: Is a hybrid self-led learning model that uses technology and in-person learning which focuses on student autonomy. In the COVID-19 context, EAA has redesigned the model so students can continue learning.
Together Project: To ensure continued learning for students, it has distributed secured laptops to each student, provided internet connectivity free of charge, and transferred learning packs to online learning.

Our capability to combat the immediate and long-term effects, requires shared commitment and capabilities across multiple sectors. Together we are working to secure fair return to education. With innovation and lessons learned, we will reach to all OOSC with quality education.
Our commitment is that we are working with more than 30 partners globally to mitigate the effects of the pandemic across the digital divide and to support the development of back to school transition planning at local and national levels. EAA has been providing support to reprogram and realign activities, develop implementation plans, and guidelines to address COVID-19.
For example, In Iraq, with UNESCO, we provided access to education continues through an online educational TV channel. Other interventions include the delivery of learning material, phone based-initiatives, and the training of teachers on conducting remote learning. Furthermore, EAA has established a bank of project based learning resources for self-led learning for low and no technology homes and we have more than 120 countries around the world using the platform.
We will continue supporting the coalition offering renewed hope for the world’s children in place to the right to education for all children through the achievement of SDG4.
