Need to know[edit]

Welcome to the Communication's Toolkit for our education response to the COVID-19 pandemic. Here you will find everything you need to support and amplify our efforts to provide educational resources and experiences to learners who are out of school. We appreciate any help you can give us, from translating and sharing lesson plans, #EduWiki challenges, and other messages, to sharing your own ideas and activities. Each week, we'll update the messages we're sharing out in this Tool-kit and include our sharing schedule. Here's what you can do:

  1. Translate the messages into other languages & localize them based on the needs and realities of your community
  2. Share the messages widely! Share them on Facebook, Twitter, Telegram, Whatsapp, TikTok or any other place you think you can reach parents, teachers and students who would benefit from these activities and resources
  3. Create your own lesson plans & #EduWiki challenges and share them with us


This week's #EduWiki Challenges and Lesson plans[edit]
