UNICEF seeks safe reopening of schools, recovery of learning loss



With schools being shut for across the country owing to Covid-19 pandemic and children losing a lot more than just education — from losing time with their teachers and friends to nutritious school meals and in some cases, a safe haven that prevents abuse and violence — UNICEF has called for safe reopening of schools and learning recovery on World Children’s Day 2021 (WCD).
The theme for this year’s WCD is to help children recover from learning losses and  interruptions   they have suffered through the pandemic in the last two years. UNICEF India along with its partners have lined up a series of events between November 14 and November 20 – both in the virtual and physical spaces – to bring light to this issue.
