Life in the Time of COVID – 19 – Report Release

With great pleasure, we as a part of Champions For Girls’ Education would like to invite you today to the release of the report “Life in the time of Covid-19 : Mapping the impact of Covid-19 on the lives of school going children especially girls in India” (hosted and organized by RTE Forum) on 26th November from 3:30 pm to 6 pm.

The study was conducted by Centre For Budget and Policy Studies on behalf of Champions for Girls’ Education, across 3176 households across 5 states in India – Assam (5 Districts), Bihar (8 Districts), Uttar Pradesh-UP (11 Districts) and Telangana (4 Districts), and Delhi (1 District) in order to understand:

  • The impact of Covid-19 on the livelihoods and earnings of families living on the margins, and its relationship with the education of children.
  • The impact of school closures and lockdown on girls’ education, including the changes in the social and familial environment that could impact enrolment and retention of girls in schools.
  • The landscape of the institutional and policy interventions with potential or intent to mitigate the adverse impact of Covid-19 on girls’ education.

The event will begin with a presentation on the key findings of the study, followed by the release of the Study and panel discussions.
