The FIFA Foundation has called on governments and private organisations to harness technological solutions in a coordinated way that support children’s educational needs across the globe during the coronavirus pandemic, and that such solutions remain part of the curriculum of the future.

“The FIFA Foundation recognises the extreme challenges that society across the world currently faces due to the coronavirus, but the time to act is now,” said FIFA Foundation Executive Chairman Mauricio Macri. “The crisis has caused an unfortunate loss of life, has interfered with how we interact with one another, and has forced people to stay at home in order to prevent the spread of the virus. This includes over 1.5 billion students who from one day to the next have been detached from their regular source of knowledge and intellectual stimulation.”
