A new way of schooling

The COVID-19 pandemic has adversely affected the primary education of children since the Government shutdown and due to the implementation of safety measures, schools have not reopened. As an alternative, FFLV has come up with an idea of home schools for primary grade FFLV students, for whom online classes would have been too difficult if not impossible. Not only can we provide these students with the essential learning but also reconnect with them and know they are safe and well. Currently, FFLV home classes are running in 11 different locations at nearby villages, conducted by FFLV senior grade students playing a role as teachers and having an opportunity to develop their teaching skills and earning some money as well.

Fundraising initiative by lil heroes

Since childhood, Sonia and her family have been facing extreme financial challenges. Her father sells small stuff for deities worship on the street with no fixed income: supporting a family of six members has been a rather impossible task.

I promise to do my best and give the best outcomes of whatever I have gained. “ Since the end of 11th grade, Sonia has been working part-time as a Beautician and […]
