SINGAPORE: Access to education, especially at a young age, can have a huge impact on one’s life but with livelihoods thwarted and schools having to be closed intermittently, the COVID-19 pandemic has disrupted this for many around the world.
In Singapore, not everyone gets a conducive environment to study outside of a school setting, especially those from low-income, vulnerable families, said Ang Yu Qian and Kloe Ng. They are founders of an education start-up who believe they can help.
The Flexible Learning Strategies for Out of School Children programme is a UNESCO initiative with the aim of supporting inclusive and quality education for every child in the region. Our goal is to reach the remaining and most vulnerable 5% of children with no access to education in the region and support quality improvements in learning for every child.
