What impact has Covid had on education?
The COVID-19 pandemic has affected educational systems worldwide, leading to the near-total closures of schools, universities and colleges.
Most governments decided to temporarily close educational institutions in an attempt to reduce the spread of COVID-19. As of 12 January 2021, approximately 825 million learners are currently affected due to school closures in response to the pandemic. According to UNICEF monitoring, 23 countries are currently implementing nationwide closures and 40 are implementing local closures, impacting about 47 percent of the world’s student population.
What impact has Covid had on jobs?
The disruption caused by Covid meant many businesses couldn’t operate in the usual way. Many of their employees couldn’t go to work and customers couldn’t buy their products or services.
Some businesses were able to get a loan to pay for overheads like rent so they could keep afloat. And many could sell things online.
But others had to cut costs by furloughing their employees or letting them go. They simply could not carry on running their business without an income.
As a result, many people have lost their job or part of their income. It is likely that there will be more job losses in the months to come.
There is always light at the end of the tunnel
That also happened to Andrei and Luminita, the founders of the Live4Life project. They both lost their jobs in the coronavirus pandemic. Their children have suffered because of the educational and the financial impact.
Andrei is a good economist with some programming skills. Luminita is a good accountant with some marketing skills.
In an attempt to improve their other skills in order to get a new job, the idea of the Live4Life project came to them:
“Support education and change of career path through professional retraining, for FREE”.
Therefore, Live4Life is a free E-Learning platform where the learners learn through reading, listening to audio files, watching video files, asking on forums and even meeting their coaches in live video streams.
Hall of Fame
Creating such powerful platform comes with costs: hiring programmers, marketers and copywriters, buying software, paying for advertising, instructors, server hosting…
But, with help of some very special people like those on the list below, anything is possible. All these people deserve more than the fact that we have them on the Hall of Fame, and we are sure that all our coworkers, instructors and learners will reserve the best thoughts for them.
There is no way to fully express our gratitude, We at LIve4Life are continually inspired by the the dedication and generosity of donors like you who answer the call to give.
PS: Help us to develop, launch and grow this free E-Learning platform.
