The method of implementing this activity is door-to-door education to underprivileged families living in the village of Sungai Buluh Selatan, Kabupaten Padang Pariaman, the majority of whom work as factory workers and daily laborers. Education was carried out using the media module/booklet and was carried out for three days, namely 1-3 July, 2020, to 32 pre-prosperous families who had been recommended by the head of the jorong.

The results of the evaluation show an increase in family understanding and motivation regarding the prevention of Covid-19 transmission. Continuous education is still very much needed, especially for underprivileged families whose access to information sources is limited.
