Covid-19 has magnified the vulnerability of children and young people living in poverty. Without access to technology, they lack basic access to the world, their school, their friends. As a result, the learning gap is expected to have worsened by at least 36%, and up to 75% for the most disadvantaged. Donate today to help bridge this digital gap.

That is why the Institute of Imagination is launching the iOi at Home: Digital Lending Library – a new digital initiative providing technology and creative iOi programmes for families in Newham, one of the boroughs hardest hit by Covid-19 in the nation, where 52% of residents are living below the poverty line.

  • It’s about building skills, wellbeing and resilience in a rapidly changing world.
  • It’s about supporting parents and teachers to close the learning gap as quickly as possible.
  • It’s about building confidence and aspiration in those who need it most.

From 23rd June – 3rd July, every donation will be doubled thanks to the Big Give and the Childhood Trust.

Please donate to the Institute of Imagination, and help us reimagine learning for those in most need, together.
