Last year during the first wave of COVID, we focused on two main activities in addition to COVID awareness.

EMERGENCY RELIEF KITS (ERK’s) – For Families in Distress

Each ERK provides basic support to a family of 5 for one month. Note: These are families who have lost income as a result of the extended lockdown.

Last Year:

In 2020, we distributed ~5000 kits.

This Year (2021):

We are currently providing ERK’s to our beneficiary base and will continue to do so until Eid (May 13th).

After Eid we will reassess and chalk out our plan for ERK relief work going forward.


Teach With CHINAR (TWC) provides child friendly spaces for children to deal with stress, provides remedial education and also focuses on covering the syllabus. The idea is to take a child friendly space to the child’s home.

This initiative has two programs

Virtual Community Learning Centers (VCLC) where a teacher teaches 20 to 30 children for 4 hours a day, 5 days a week.

Teach with CHINAR X (TWCx) where a teacher teaches 3-5 children in his/her immediate neighborhood.

Last Year:

In 2020, TWC provided remedial education to ~2000 children supported by over 50 teachers/volunteers.

This Year (2021):

We are starting off with 15 VCLCs and 15 TWCx programs. These will be scaled up rapidly going forward.

This year in addition to the two programs above, we are also focusing on providing LIVELIHOOD SUPPORT to the guardians of children and youth.
