Coronavirus: Crowdfunder launched to end digital divide in schools

PUBLIC INFORMATION PAGES FROM CAMDEN COUNCIL

Camden Learning, a partnership between local schools and Camden Council, has launched its first ever Crowdfunder to raise money to support school children whose learning is most affected by the coronavirus pandemic.

More than 3,000 Camden pupils are without access to a computer – or have to share with siblings. Unless money is raised to buy laptops and Wi-Fi access, many of these children, who are among the most disadvantaged in the borough, will be denied the online learning they desperately need if they are sent home due to COVID-19 cases in their school or there is a local or national lockdown.

To support these pupils, Camden Learning is asking residents and businesses to support the Crowdfunder to end the digital divide.
