Impact of Covid-19 on youth: Opportunities and Challenges
COVID-19 has a detrimental effect on the youths and this may prove to be one of its damaging legacies. In fact, the coronavirus crisis risks turning back the clock on years of progress made on young people’s well-being and has put their rights under serious pressure across the globe. Issues of access to education, domestic abuse, child labour and lack of decent work are some of the many challenges that many institutions are grappling with. While the universities, NGOs, as well as governments are turning their attention to these problems, young people also have a key role to play in finding solutions.
Human Rights Law and Children's Right to Education
Can Human Rights Law Provide Guidance on Realising a Child's Right to Education in the Face of a Pandemic?
Before the COVID-19 pandemic, children’s access to education in the African context was already unequal. COVID-19 has exacerbated the situation with lockdowns, widespread school closures, the use of online learning in resource-poor contexts and limited tuition at schools when, and if, they resumed in-person teaching. Apart from these educational impacts, COVID-19 has also affected other rights of children: for instance, there have been increases in domestic violence, as well as an inability to access school meals that provided much-needed nutrition.
