United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF) | Jun-Aug 2020
The COVID-19 pandemic affected education and continuity of learning. Apart from 23 million out of school children, closure of education institutions due to COVID-19 has directly impacted 42 million school going learners from pre-primary and primary to higher secondary and degree college levels. InterWorks supported UNICEF in developing the Pakistan National Education Response and Resilience Plan (K-12) for COVID-19. In addition, InterWorks assisted in drafting guidelines for Safe Reopening of Schools that outlined principles, key considerations, criteria on WASH, social distancing and other IPC measures that are required to be in place to safely reopen schools in provinces/areas.
