Tirana, 17 September 2018- “First day of the school is a happy day when children return to school eager to learn and reconnect with their friends. If I had one wish to make in this special day it is not only to see that every child in Albania has access to quality learning but also that every child lives a positive childhood free from violence abuse and neglect” says UNICEF Representative Roberto De Bernardi.
This year, UNICEF globally is pushing for collective efforts to #endviolence in schools through a global campaign An Everyday Lesson: #ENDviolence in Schools.
We join this global initiative by wishing that this academic year and the reforms undertaken by Ministry of Education, Sports and Youth pay off and that we see less bullying and violence of any form against children. We are aiming to create a network of schools certified to be violence free which would ultimately become a laboratory for exchange and learning for all schools in Albania.
