Nepal, number 54!

Hurrah for Nepal! Its Parliament has finally made all corporal punishment of children a criminal offense. This makes Nepal the 54th nation to have protected children from legitimized violence. And the first in South Asia.

Meanwhile, 56 additional countries have committed themselves to enacting this ban.

And hitting children is now a crime in the schools of 131 nations.

Every year, a steady improvement!
