Assessment of Child Protection Concerns of Children in Terai Districts
PDF File Size: 395 KB | Download   
Even though Nepal has made considerable progress in its peace process since the signing of the Comprehensive Peace Agreement in November 2006 the security situation in the terai has been of increasing concern. The activities of the armed groups in the terai affect children’s lives in several ways. This report is based on a comprehensive assessment of the situation and attempts to capture the current situation for children as it is perceived by the people who live there.

This report paints a grim and alarming picture of the current situation in the terai where the on-going violence and lawlessness creates a climate of fear which affects children’s lives in a number of negative ways. At the same time the report offers some recommendations for changing this negative spiral to a positive one. Ensuring that schools stay open during bandhs would be one important step. Children who are attending school are much less likely to join an armed group. Teacher support was also identified as one of the most important sources of support for vulnerable children. It was also pointed out that children who are aware about the risks of getting involved with armed groups are much less likely to join one of these groups.These and other recommendations are included at the end of the report.
