Many countries have arranged for remote learning systems or online classes so that studies are not affected during lockdown. Students are being taught through mobile, TV and radio. However, there are a large number of children who do not have online class facilities, do not have mobile and TV. Especially in villages, even if there is mobile, there is no internet, in many areas there is not even electricity to charge mobile.
