The founder of Slum2School, Otto Orondaam, has proffered a very big solution to the problem of learning in this period when children are forced out of school by the coronavirus.
He announced his organisation has made it possible for 948 kids to learn remotely with their first Virtual Learning Classroom in Africa.
Otto said his aim is to reach 10,000 kids during this season. Impossible is really nothing.
Below are the photos of the setup:
Impossible is Nothing. I'm so excited to announce the launch of our first Virtual Learning Classroom in Africa.
Today 948 kids can learn remotely but we want to reach 10,000kids.
Kindly RT & let's support kids across communities to learn during & after this period. #Slum2School pic.twitter.com/hntaWfkfSD

Meanwhile, Nigeriana earlier reported that secondary schools under the control of the federal government will not be reopening for the forthcoming WAEC examinations, the minister of education, Adamu Adamu, announced.
Top presidential aide Tolu Ogunlesi made this known via a thread of tweets on his Twitter account on Wednesday evening, July 8.
The minister also called on the management of WAEC to suspend the exams just as he urged state governments to toe the federal government’s line.
The tweets partly read: “There’s an EDUCATION UPDATE: Minister of Education has just announced that schools under control of the Federal Govt will NOT be reopening for the forthcoming WAEC Exams. Says WAEC should suspend exams, and urges State Govts to toe the FG line.”
