CHANCE4ALL AFTER COVID-19--MOVING FORWARD
Moving forward after the pandemic has been challenging for the whole world which caused a great educational crisis, and impacted negatively on students’ learning.
The mission of Chance4all, now more than ever, is focused on overcoming the learning crisis and guiding the children to bridge the gap. At the height of the pandemic Chance4all put in place various strategies to keep supporting families in need, by distributing food & sanitary items, homework packages, as well as providing tuitions for examinations classes in a safe learning environment. We continue our support beyond the sponsored students and to the Bauleni community through workshops and computer programs focused on teacher development.
In March 2021, we started a new project on Global Giving with a focus on Gender Equity and Girls' Education. The objectives of the project are to address the root causes that hinder the girls' retention and poor attendance in school, which have also been exacerbated as a result of COVID- 19.
The latest workshop reached about 60 girls, from the ages of 12 years to 18 years from different local schools. During this workshop health products and reusable sanitary pads were distributed.
We have opened these workshops to boys. The boys participated and were particularly interested in the aspects of sexual reproductive health , mental health awareness and effects of gaming.

With that purpose we have set up a simple framework to identify genuine cases of children outside the schooling system, we match them with suitable sponsors, and make sure funds are properly utilized.
