Volunteering session with students during COVID-19

HomeConnect- Volunteering From Home

 

Learning Links Foundation

Program Description

#HomeConnect is a 'Volunteer from Home' initiative of Learning Links Foundation, a not-for-profit organization that has been supporting education and skill building initiatives since 2002 (www.learninglinksindia.orgwww.facebook.com/learninglinksindia)

While the state and central governments are taking care of essential services such as health, water, food and sanitation, there is a human side to pandemic management that volunteers can help with. COVID-19 and the nation-wide lockdown has deprived millions of students from their social engagements such as playing with friends, studying in schools, visiting friends, families and places of worships. 

#HomeConnect strives to bring some cheer and joy in the lives of students and their families from the communities around the facilities/ establishments of corporate houses through employee volunteering. This initiative is open for all employees of a corporate house and their immediate family members.

Sample activities: COVID-19 management, Yoga for children, art & craft sessions, communication sessions, fun with mathematics, mentoring sessions etc.

All activities are conducted on a ‘Volunteer from home” basis through the following modes:

  1. Live sessions using audio/ video calls
  2. Engage offline through pre-recorded audio/ video sessions

Each #HomeConnect session is conducted in the mother tongue of the beneficiary.

 ACTIVITIES UNDER #HOMECONNECT

#HomeConnect has been designed taking into cognizance the safety of the volunteering employees and their families. Therefore, LLF conducts all activities on a ‘Volunteer from home” basis, meaning the volunteers do not need to leave their homes for conducting these activities. Volunteers also have the flexibility to choose from any of the following modes of volunteering, based on the format that suits them, and the activities that they plan to conduct.

A. Connect directly with the beneficiaries and conduct the sessions live using audio/ video calls based on commonly available secure mediums of communication. Each volunteer would handle a maximum of 6 beneficiaries in each session. All sessions are conducted in the regional language of the beneficiaries

B. Engage offline with the beneficiaries through pre-recorded audio/ video sessions, activities, quizzes etc.  These sessions are specially designed to empower those beneficiaries who might not have good connectivity/ ready access to technology.

  • COVID-19 management
  • Art & craft sessions
  • Yoga
  • Mentoring sessions
  • Dance videos (offline only)
