COVID-19 is compounding the gap between ambition and reality for children, as the pandemic has abruptly thrust the rights and wellbeing of children and families into greater risk, around the world. While around the globe all are working to manage the impact of COVID-19, in the process we may risk overlooking its impact on children facing the greatest adversities. Minimising the negative impact of the COVID-19 emergency on children will be critical to children’s recovery, and to the medium and long-term societal and global recovery and resilience.
Inspiring Children’s Futures is working with partners to deliver three COVID-19 related projects: We are learning from past pandemics to improve our responses; we are collating on-the-ground evidence of public services’ policies and practices using a Smartphone App daily log of questions across 5 continents and 25 countries; and we are working with others in preparing for post-COVID recovery.
