Emirates Red Crescent earmarks AED 5 million to support remote learning

The Red Crescent Allocates 5 Million Dirhams To Support Distance Education In The Country

In line with precautionary measures taken by the UAE to contain Covid-19, including social distancing, The Emirates Red Crescent volunteer allocated AED 5 million to support remote learning, in collaboration with the UAE Ministry of Education. The donation is part of ERC's contributions to the "Fund of the UAE - Homeland of Humanity" initiatives to help provide laptops and tablets to students.

ERC's money will help fund laptops and tablets for students required to study from home and adhere to the UAE's preventative measures against Covid-19.

An assessment conducted by the ERC has identified requirements of the schools and students, which are currently being met, in collaboration with the Fund's key partners, including the National Emergency Crisis and Disaster Management Authority in coordination with philanthropic and charitable organisations in the UAE.

A number of ERC's volunteers are currently engaged in providing virtual lessons to students through the ministry's distance learning platform.
