National Children’s Day: The challenge of sustaining school remains

This year’s National Children’s Day is being celebrated virtually on Monday under the slogan ‘Ensuring Child Rights in Disaster, Commitment of All of Us’.

On the occasion of the day, the Ministry of Women, Children and Senior Citizens is preparing to celebrate the day on behalf of the main organizing committee with the Chief Minister and other stakeholders.

The day commemorates the day Nepal ratified the 1989 United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child. It has been 30 years since the Convention was ratified. In Nepal, the net enrollment of children at the primary level has reached 97 percent, but the challenge of increasing the sustainability rate remains.

The ‘Report on the Status of Children in Nepal, 2076’, published by the National Council for the Rights of the Child, addresses issues such as child labor, child marriage, inhumane sexual violence against children, abuse, and illegal trafficking in the country. Suggestions for improvement are suggested. Krishna Subedi, chairman of Child Nepal, an organization working in the field of child rights, said that all children should exercise their rights on the occasion of National Child Rights Day.

On the occasion of the day, the Education and Human Resource Development Center has called for celebrating the day by following the safety standards at the district level and holding essay competitions at the secondary level for classes 9 and 10.

The Madan Bhandari Foundation is interacting with Children’s Minister Parvat Gurung, experts and children on the impact of the Corona epidemic on child development. RSS
