Covid-19 Impact

Covid-19 Impact

More than 1.5 billion students and youth across the planet have been affected by school and university closures due to the COVID-19 pandemic at the peak of the crisis, and it is projected that over 100 million additional children will fall below the minimum proficiency level in reading as a result of the sanitary crisis. Prioritizing education recovery is crucial to avoid a generational catastrophe.
