KOMPAS.com - The pandemic is yet to be over. To keep the students safe, they’re advised to continue their studies at home.
It’s not a big problem for most students, especially those who have easy access to the internet and sufficient supporting equipment.
However, it’s a different story for the poor children. Learning from home requires at least a laptop or computer, along with reliable internet access.
They have neither the facilities nor the infrastructure, so learning from home is not the best option for them. The learning process becomes difficult because it is hindered by these limitations.
Concerned by this condition, non-governmental organization (NGO) Human Initiative takes concrete steps to encourage the public in helping underprivileged children, so they can properly follow the learning process from home.
The Human Initiative invites the public to work together to present the Online Learning House.
Senior GM Human Initiative Ferry Suranto said that this learning house would help underprivileged children by providing learning support facilities.
"As we know, currently there are still many students who don’t have the facilities to support online learning from home because they are still lacking (in resources)," said Ferry.
He continued with the hope that the online learning house can allow underprivileged students to take advantage of the facilities needed to study effectively.
Currently there are 3 Online Learning Houses opened by Human Initiative, located in Depok, Kramat Jati, and Menteng.
In the future, Human Initiative will open 12 Online Learning Houses in several parts of Indonesia such as Aceh, Bengkulu, Bukittinggi, Padang, Lampung, Bandung, Makassar, Deli Serdang, East Kalimantan, and Ambon.
