Following the outbreak of the COVID-19, many children have been experiencing a degree of disruption like never before. The negative impact on the educational environment has resulted in significant inequality in education. Many children have lost opportunities to learn, to dream, and to break through in their formative years.
Children are our greatest treasure, hope and future. They are full of dreams and potential, of which education is their utmost power to create endless possibilities. During these difficult times arising out of the pandemic, technology is the key to that utmost power as it makes remote learning achievable, ensuring children having the opportunities to continue pursuing their dreams.
Education Without Borders – Providing Global Digital Access to Quality Learning
As an innovative financial technology group, Doo Group always believes in the power of knowledge and technology. Technology extends human possibility, bringing positive influence on every aspect of our lives. Education is one of the best examples.
According to UNICEF, 9 out of 10 countries worldwide make use of online learning platforms to support children’s learning. In order to make learning resources accessible to underprivileged students in remote areas, UNICEF has launched “The Learning Passport” program to connect children, youth and teachers around the world via an innovative platform. The program not only enables students to familiarize themselves with digital learning models, but also breaks down the barriers in teaching and learning, building a more inclusive educational environment.
“The pandemic showed that students just need the right tools to satisfy their curiosity. And curiosity is the door to knowledge,” wrote Isabela Carina from Timor-Leste in her ‘Voices of Youth’ blog shared by UNICEF.

On 14 April 2020, two girls view the online platform on which children and parents in Timor-Leste can access a range of audio-visual material to help students continue learning during ongoing school closures. Television programs, radio programs and e-books, as well as a book for parents to explain COVID-19 to children with neurodevelopmental needs, are available on the Learning Passport platform. Schools in Timor-Leste have been closed since 23 March 2020 as part of national efforts to prevent the spread of COVID-19.
“We need to have young people with critical thinking skills and deep knowledge of technology,” said Tajanica Crista, an 18-year-old student from Eskola Colegio Santo Inacio de Loiola.

Student Tajanica Crista spoke about the importance of reliable internet access for all students, no matter where they may live.
Education empowers people with knowledge and skills they need in building a better tomorrow. However, a high-quality education is not always available, particularly in times of uncertainty. Therefore, Doo Group strongly supports UNICEF initiative in creating an inclusive education and sustainable learning with the power of technology.
