Technical Support for Re-opening of Seasonal Hostels

The continued closure of schools during the COVID-19 pandemic has led to an increase in learning deficits and drop-out rates. Financial distress and lack of hostels further compelled many children to migrate with their families and work as labour to assist them.

Working on the framework of the two overlapping cycles—the migration cycle and the school cycle, LAMP continued its engagement with the children and training of the teams to ensure the creation of a support system and the well-being of both, throughout the pandemic.

To help facilitate access to quality mainstream education, within a safe environment, LAMP provided technical support to various state governments and communities for the opening, management, and monitoring of seasonal hostels.

Learning Recovery Program

Leveraging the experience of working with the government and communities, LAMP quickly pivoted to adopt a life-cycle approach, to mitigate the impact of a COVID-spurred learning loss and high risk of migration in children.

It focused on children in pre-primary to secondary grades and endeavored toward curtailing learning loss through remediation, online, in-school, home-based, and community-based learning support.

LAMP also trained government school teachers on learning recovery and the use of digital tools/media while coordinating online/offline teaching-learning activities, designed for children in migrant, tribal, and rural areas.

Technical partnerships and concerted efforts with State Governments further provided the opportunity to replicate similar models across other migration-affected states.
