A lot has happened and changed in the world over the past months since #COVID19 #pandemic erupted. #CoronaVirus shows how vulnerable we remain. This #pandemic has had far-reaching consequences beyond the spread of the disease itself and efforts to quarantine it. As the health and human toll grows, the economic damage is already evident and represents the largest economic shock the world has experienced in decades.
Stunning, staggering, mind-numbing, call it what you will, the COVID-19 pandemic’s crushing impact on the job market is inescapable.
Job losses due to business closures peaked at 23 million last May, according to the Georgetown center on Education and the workforce statistics. #ChinmayaMission centers around USA, joining hands with #CORDUSA, have raised awareness and funds and so far we have raised close to 500,000 for helping those who are affected by the pandemic.

Our ELL Tutoring program turned 5!
Pandemic posed many challenges to our educational system. There are unique, ELL (English Language Learners) -specific risks for learning loss while schools are closed. Most of ELL students live in homes without native speakers of English. This “linguistic isolation” can create unique challenges for supporting and serving these students during the pandemic.
This can be challenging while schools are closed. It’s one thing for teachers to plan lessons and design academically aligned language-development activities to get ELs talking when they’re surrounded by students at school. It’s quite another to replicate those activities during remote learning.
We are proud to present Presidential Volunteer Service Awards to Devak Singh, Idika Kontu, Nividh Singh, Gowri Ganesh & Sanika Bedre for continuing to tutor our ELL students during the pandemic.
