School closures in our project areas

India has now closed all educational institutions and is gradually implementing them. This is also the case in Nepal. All tests are also postponed there. There are no officially infected people in Myanmar yet, but the country has closed all preschools. Bangladesh is expected to follow suit soon.

Freedom of movement is already severely restricted, and air traffic is largely suspended. Our remaining German employees on site will not be able to leave for weeks or months.

Our project team is working to provide our local staff with the necessary information, recommendations and training to deal with the crisis as effectively as possible. We will also mobilise our network at 670 project sites to educate the population about transmission routes and appropriate protection measures.
