OUR COVID-19 RESPONSE UPDATES

COVID-19: Civil Society Alliance Support to Relief Efforts

The ‘COVID 19: Civil Society Alliance Support to Relief Efforts’ programme focuses on building community capabilities to address the immediate and medium-term effects of COVID-19 on health, well-being and livelihoods security of the rural poor; demonstrate a local government planning approach to address issues related to mass home-coming of migrant workers; and support school-going children to overcome academic challenges posed by closed schools/inaccessible online learning platforms.

The programme aims to build community capabilities to address the impacts of COVID-19, demonstrate a convergent planning approach to respond to challenges from mass-return of migrant workers, and provide supplementary education to students missing school.
