Mumbai (Maharashtra), October 18 — As online classes have been promoted to protect children from coronavirus infection, children belonging to economically weaker section of the society are facing a lot of problems due to no access to laptops and smartphones. In view of this, the Mumbai Municipal and Private Urdu Teachers Union have launched a mobile phone library for such children in the country's financial capital Mumbai.
This library has been launched in Imamwada area of Mumbai for Class 1 to 10. Financially weak students, who could not buy mobile phones, are now attending online classes here through the 'Free Digital Online Mobile Education Library' and 22 students have so far enrolled themselves to attend classes.
"Some students either do not have mobile phones or there is only one mobile phone in their family. So we initiated the idea of a free mobile library class," Shahina Sayed, Centre Incharge, told ANI.
