A year on Nepal Earthquakes: Education Continues in Affected Districts but Children Still Need Safe and Stable Learning Environment
PDF File Size: 279 KB | Download   
A year after devastating earthquakes in Nepal, 1.6 million school children are starting the new academic year in affected areas. Yet many of them continue to study in temporary classrooms. While recovery and reconstruction efforts are moving ahead, much remains to be done to ensure a rapid return to normalcy and predictability for these children. “The devastating earthquakes last year destroyed or severely damaged over 35,000 classrooms. After that, tremendous amount of efforts were made to bring children back to school as soon as possible to minimize disruption of their education and exposure to risks of neglect, exploitation and violence," said Tomoo Hozumi, UNICEF Representative to Nepal. "Thanks to these efforts, schools in affected districts were reopened a month after the first earthquake in makeshift classrooms. Now we need to redouble our efforts to ensure children can study in safe transitional or permanent classrooms as early as possible.”
