SMC/SDMC Project

Strengthening SMC/SDMC towards creation of a stigma and discrimination free learning environment in the context of COVID19

(April 2021- March 2022)

 Communities led by SMC/SDMCs can play a constructive role in ensuring that learning is not hampered outside of school premises, through active ownership of communities. Also, SMCs have a crucial role in ascertaining the schools themselves become safe inclusive zones, free of stigma and discrimination for every child, when the school structures reopen again for students. Care must also be taken to prevent stigmatizing of those, who may have been exposed to the virus directly, indirectly or presumptively by other students and staff. Finally an oversight of precautions necessary to prevent the potential spread of COVID-19 in school settings also falls in SMC/SMDCs roles
