How COVID Affected Education in India

1.5 million schools, closed down to contain the pandemic, have remained largely closed since March 2020

10 million girls in India likely to be pushed out of school by the pandemic

250 million students affected by loss of learning and nutrition from school closures

82% to 92% of students in grades 2-6 lost at least one ability in language and mathematics, respectively, over previous year

School closures impacted socio-emotional well-being of students; 33% of 5-13 year-olds and 50% of 14-18 year-olds reported poor mental health 

84% of Indian households reported  income loss during the lockdown in 2020

How Can UNI Help Solve This Issue?

Access to Education

This portable hotspot provides wireless access to pre-loaded digital resources by leveraging existing open-access educational resources such as Wikipedia and Khan Academy. 

Global Connectivity

UNI provides a connectivity bridge that allows populations who do not have access to the Internet to access valuable resources for the purpose of teaching, learning and researching.

Easily Integrated

UNI works with devices that the local populations are already using, such as inexpensive Android phones and old model laptops with wi-fi compatibility, making it a feasible solution.
