Keep learning in the time of Corona


December 24, 2020

Due to the current worldwide outbreak of COVID-19, all of us are compelled to stay at home and practice social distancing. Consequently, all the schools are closed as well and there are no signs of schools reopening anytime soon. With classes, extracurricular activities and sports all at a standstill, how do we keep our children engaged and learning? They need some productive engagements as we believe that learning shouldn’t stop and this situation does not have to become a barrier in a child’s learning. But Karkhana can help you through this situation as we are partners in your child’s journey.

This resource set has links to free lessons and videos that our team has chosen from around the world. It also includes access to many Karkhana lessons for free. In addition to do-it-yourself lessons that are available for free, we are starting to provide digital classes that are facilitated by experienced teachers.
