To address the brewing crisis in the education space, NDTV and Range De a peer-to-peer lending platform have come together to initiate the campaign #RangDe. The campaign aims to prevent children from dropping out of school and help them continue their education, despite the disruption caused by Covid-19 pandemic.

 With classes going online, thousands of children have had to scramble for gadgets to get online. The digital divide has never been more obvious, resulting in several kids dropping out of school.

Covid-19 pandemic has posed many unforeseen challenges for the education sector. Teachers have had to undergo salary cuts, many parents have not been able to pay the school fees due to job losses. For low income households, the crisis is further accentuated. 

Schools are struggling to resume normal operation as the Covid-19 pandemic is still raging.
