The United Nations recalled an installation that could be seen today at the UN gateway, where about 168 million children around the world dropped out of school a year ago due to the Govt-19 epidemic.
Through his official Twitter account, United Nations Secretary-General Antonio Guterres shared a video showing desks and empty children’s spines parked very close to the main entrance to the multilateral organization’s headquarters in New York.
‘We are facing a global education crisis. No effort should be made to ensure that all children return safely to the classroom.
According to Goodres in the video, one of the most dramatic consequences of the epidemic was the terrible suffering of children and their families due to the inability of minors to go to school.
The Portuguese diplomat lamented that many have the opportunity to almost follow their own classes, but the poorest people do not have internet connection and thus millions of children do not have the opportunity to pursue education.
He emphasized that this was a tragedy for them, for their nations, and for the future of all mankind.
The establishment of the United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF) draws attention to the educational emergency, which has created closures and control measures around the world due to the epidemic.
Each empty desk represents one million children living in countries where schools are almost completely closed due to restrictions associated with the health crisis.
According to UNICEF, plans to reopen schools should link efforts to restore the education lost to these minors.
