Covid-19 continues to disrupt our world in a host of ways. However, some of the most disproportionately impacted are students in low-income communities. Studies show that this demographic has always faced barriers to education - since the pandemic, these barriers have been significantly amplified.
To help combat these challenges, Pathways to Education - a national, charitable organisation breaking the cycle of poverty through education - in collaboration with Camp Jefferson, has unveiled its national awareness campaign 'Disconnected Education'. The campaign includes a new landing page
amongst other social and digital assets.
Launched nationally on 15th June, the work draws attention to the issues that students in low-income communities are facing - including financial insecurity, difficulty accessing online opportunities owing to a lack of technology, and challenging learning environments, all of which could permanently disconnect them from their education - and calls on Canadians to lend a hand.
