We are a UK based charity which aims to provide assistance to a number of elementary schools in The Philippines. The Covid 19 pandemic now means that ODE’s work has therefore become even more important.
The Covid 19 crisis we are now in has not only claimed the lives of over three million people but also has disrupted learning for millions of learners in almost every country in the world.
According to the UN
“The crisis is exacerbating pre-existing education disparities by reducing the opportunities for many of the most vulnerable children, youth, and adults – those living in poor or rural areas, girls, refugees, persons with disabilities and forcibly displaced persons – to continue their learning.”
Currently Overseas Development and Education is supporting Igpaho, Pook and Lantangan elementary schools in the Visayas, Balila on the island of Mindanao in the south and Hucab in the mountainous Ifugao Province in the north of the country with supplies to enable students to continue their education at home while all schools in the country are closed due to Covid-19.
