The Right to Education is a fundamental human right acknowledged by dozens of international law treaties.
For this right to be fulfilled during a global pandemic, reliable access to the internet is no longer a bonus but a fundamental tool for learning. However, with the economic downturn hitting the poorest the hardest, this access to education is withheld from those who need it most.
Indeed, with schools closed and incomes spread thin, many families in the Pavão-Pavãozinho and Cantagalo favelas are struggling to pay rent, let alone ensure their children have access to the internet on the one family device.
4G So I Can Study aims to remove this as a problem for our kids so they can continue their development. The project aims to fundraise enough to cover 4G for 300 families over a period of 6 months.
