As a result of the COVID-19 pandemic and the ensuing restrictions, educational institutions across Brazil had to suspend their on-site academic activities.
TVET institutions wanted to support the fight against the pandemic. They quickly put their efforts into manufacturing hand sanitizer, personal protection and medical equipment, and supporting repatriated students by providing hygiene kits and donating food.
These activities were then tracked through a mapping system in order to increase transparency and cooperation with other institutions. In doing so, other public entities, such as city halls, schools, nurseries, and hospitals were able to easily collaborate with TVET institutions to redouble efforts in the fight against COVID-19.
