UN’s Piper concerned over attacks on schools


KATHMANDU: United Nations Resident Coordinator in Nepal, Robert Piper has expressed deep concern over the increasing number of attacks on schools by some youth activists, which, he said, are endangering the lives of children and infringing their right to education.

Issuing a press release on Tuesday, Mr Piper said the reports of arson and vandalism in schools and school buses go against the spirit of Schools as Zones of Peace, adding such acts of violence go against the basic principles of children’s right to education in a protective environment free from fear.

He reminded that Nepal is also a signatory to the Convention on the Rights of the Child (CRC) and should therefore ensure that every child be provided their basic rights to grow, to learn and to play in peace.

Moreover, the UN System in Nepal has appealed to the Government, the political parties, and all child protection partners and youth organisations to respect the spirit of Schools as Zones of Peace and to ensure that children in Nepal are allowed to thrive, grow and be educated in an atmosphere free of violence and terror.
