In most countries, people have been worried a lot about Covid-19 but are just suffering as much as their girls who have been at home for so long.
African Connect Site has expressed its concerns about a report on the most challenges our children have experienced during the lockdowns in many African countries.
The United Nations has called on all African countries to find a way to open schools safely, warning that children are at increased risk of violence, sexual abuse and malnutrition, if they do not return to school quickly.
Of the 39 African countries surveyed, the World Health Organization found that schools are only fully open in six countries. There are about a dozen more plans to start over next month, although Kenya has closed classes until 2021.
Online lessons are nearly impossible for the vast majority of African children, due to problems with internet access.
Our efforts to contain Covid-19 should not be surprised and end up with a lost generation. Just as countries safely open their businesses, we can reopen the program.
