Support Volunteer - Education Saves Lives

This opportunity is ongoing, with no end date.

Education Saves Lives has created a simple, interactive, FREE online lesson to explain the advice from the World Health Organisation. It is translated into local languages so that everyone can access this vital, life-saving information. Would you be able to help in the global effort against the new Coronavirus, from the safety of your own home?

If you have time to spare during lockdown, our Coronavirus Action project can keep you busy, give you a bigger perspective, and help communities around the world be better informed.

You can help give as many people as possible the opportunity to see our lesson about Covid-19 simply by:
• Researching organisations who might be able to use or share the lesson 
• Making a list of the organisations you find
• Passing the list on to us

The lesson: • Is streamed from the website (not downloadable) • Has an optional quiz at the end to reinforce what has been learned • Lasts about 20 minutes • Is FREE to use (apart from data costs)  

It explains: • What coronavirus is, and how it is spread • How to reduce the risk of infection  • When medical help should be sought, and the importance of listening to local advice • Some of the myths around the virus
