COVID-19: a disaster in the guise of others

COVID-19 has shaken the world, claiming thousands of lives, destroying millions of jobs, and bringing the world as it was once known to a halt. But beyond the human, social and financial consequences that weigh on our daily lives, the crisis is proving to be more insidious than it seemed, gradually revealing silent catastrophes, which plague the world today and that of tomorrow. Aide et Action is sounding the alarm bells on the International Day of Education (24 January).



The COVID-19 pandemic has worsened the economic situation of the most vulnerable. Thousands of children are forced to work to help their families meet their basic needs. Among them, migrants are the most at risk. On the occasion of International Migrants Day, December 18, Aide et Action is highlighting their fundamental rights and freedoms.

India: ‘Educate Connect program’ to reduce school dropouts among children of migrant workers

According to the India census 2011, there were 92.95 million internal child migrants dispersed across the country, with present-day figures likely to be much higher.

The current COVID pandemic has further exacerbated the vulnerable situation of such periled groups. To address these challenges, Aide et Action initiates the ‘Education Connect Program’ which ensures continued learning for returnee migrant children in Odisha.
