The coronavirus pandemic has stopped our normal life all over the world. Disrupted children's education system, the children are staying at home as the school has been closed for a long time which has become a major obstacle in the mental, physical, and intellectual development of children.
ActionAid Bangladesh has been consistently communicating with the children and has been implementing various activities for their psychosocial development. At the same time, implementing various initiatives to accelerate the creative learning process of children, even nationwide lock-down has resulted in children staying at home, and we are trying to create participation of children in a variety of creative activities.
Very recently Child Sponsorship Team of AAB organized a drawing competition for children, where children sit at home and draw their thought. The main theme of this drawing competition was "COVID-19 in the eyes of children". We implemented these events in our 15 LRPs where more than 200 children had the opportunity to participate. Each child sits in their own home and participates in the competition. It was a different experience for them.
