Making an impact in a post-pandemic world
By Zoe Willis
The impact of COVID-19 has hit hard, with every society facing inevitable effects for years to come. Among those hit the hardest are children and young people, whose education is at risk given school closures. ZOO Memorial Foundation is focusing on mitigating the devastating impact this could have on children’s education. Digital connectivity and remote learning are more vital than ever, and ZOO Memorial Foundation is working to ensure that young people and children do not get left behind due to the pandemic.
In 2019, 94% of those who benefitted from ZOO’s work were children. This figure shows how vital ZOO’s work is to ensure digital education and training reaches as many children and young people as possible. With the threat of a second wave looming and the urgency to help children succeed in a post-pandemic world, this work is more important than ever. Thousands of people each year benefit from ZOO’s work, help support this by finding out more and donating to the various projects ZOO Memorial Foundation runs and supports.
