In this together: Responding to COVID

This was worth saying again.
– from The Boy, the Mole, the Fox and the Horse by Charlie Mackesy

The current outbreak is worrying. With our homes becoming our offices, schools and playgrounds, we have all experienced great change.

At Involve things have been no different. While our team has adapted all of the necessary measures to avoid contracting the virus, we’ve also sought to pivot and enhance how we seek to serve our community.

In these unprecedented times today, it seems even more important that we are there for each other.

Below are some of the ways we have been keeping ourselves happy & energised while also ensuring that we play our part to flatten the curve.

  • COVID Awareness – We are facing the challenge of an overabundance of information related to the virus some of which is false and potentially harmful. Inaccurate information spreads widely and at speed, making it more difficult for the public to differentiate facts from misconceptions. Involve, has partnered together with organisations across India to disseminate verified information in 10+ regional languages to ensure maximum outreach and awareness in rural areas parts of India.
  • COVID Support – We are hosting a fundraising spotlight to amplify the work of organizations working on ground, who do not have a large reach/ networks. This includes identifying credible grass root organisations who are working relentlessly to ensure that the situation is handled with utmost care on ground and helping them raise funds for it.
  • Wellbeing – We all gather every day at 5:30 PM on a hangouts call to vent out, have random conversations about things going on with us and just relax. Also, every Wednesday early morning from 9:30-10:30 AM we gather virtually to play games, have conversations about things that interest us. We would love to have you & will try our best to ensure that you enjoy our company. Reply to this email or reach out to us at involve.education@gmail.com if you would want to join us in any of these calls.

Also, If you are feeling anxious, angry, sad, want to vent out or have conversations to divert your mind from the situation right now we would love to get on a call. Do reach out to any of our team members on this email id (involve.education@gmail.com). 

In the coming weeks and months, we will continue to support the community in whatever ways we can.

Let’s work together to protect and care for one another.

Even from afar, we’re in this together
