Manage alternative care centres

Children and Women in Social Service and Human Rights, a non-government organisation, has demanded that the government and other stakeholders to monitor the status of children after earthquake and to ensure their education with alternative care centres.

As children are vulnerable to labour exploitation and trafficking in the aftermath of the earthquake, all concerned agencies, including the government, should monitor the status of those vulnerable children and play their role in reintegrating them to the families and ensure their access to education, said a press statement issued by CWISH on the eve of the World Day against Child Labour.

It also appealed to Nepal Police, District Child Welfare Centers and all concerned ministries to keep constant vigil on the international borders and transportation system to make sure that the children are not trafficked out of the country. The most recent global estimation suggests that some 120 million children between the age of 5-14 were involved in child labour, with boys and girls in this age group almost equally affected.
