When School moved towards to Home,
We stood by Parents

We at Saajha, are committed to empowering communities hit adversely due to the Covid-19 crisis. With an objective that the well-being of children is ensured; Saajha designed interventions to support marginalized households with access to dry ration (uncooked food items), and feasible methods to engage with the child at home during the lockdown period in Delhi and in Maharashtra. Efforts were directed towards creating a connection with parents in order to enable the creation of a channel of communication to address multiple layers of issues faced by these parents.
We extended support to 70000+ parents from Delhi, Mumbai, Bhiwandi, and Maharashtra’s tribal belts

We worked on three levels

Rapid Action

We provided access to ration to 5000+ parents. We established channels to provide crucial information regarding Govt welfare schemes.

Continued Support With Parents

Listening to parents became the core part of our efforts. Amidst the various challenges faced by parents, we focused on ensuring their well-being. Our call centre executives regularly engage in empathetic conversations with parents. We extended more than 5000 hours of call based support and exchanged over more than 2 lakh messages on WhatsApp.

Enabling Home Learning

We supported parents with tools to enable a learning environment at home. As parents became educators to their children, we supported them by providing information crucial for their child’s learning. We focused on building relationships between parents and children by providing engaging activities.
