A Save the Children Staff Member distributing school meals and books to children. Providing resources for learning at home
We are distributing books, at-home learning supplies (paper, pencils and art supplies), educational resources (learning games, puzzles and workbooks). We are providing small grants for those among our partner schools struggling to keep up with the demand for printing and distributing learning packets for children, or who can procure materials and supplies locally. By breaking through these barriers, we are making sure children in isolated areas continue to learn.
Addressing food insecurity
We are working to ensure that schools and communities have continuing access to food during school closures. Through federal reimbursements, schools are receiving funds for the meals they typically provide, but the distribution and transportation of that food is not covered. We are providing grants to school districts to cover the costs of fuel, transportation and labor to ensure that school feeding programs stay open and available to all children, including those in the most high-need areas.
