Triumph Over Terror Series
Discipline with Dignity

The attempt to end corporal punishment in Nepalese schools.

A printer-friendly version of this page 26 minutes
Directed by Mohan Mainali and Mohan Bista
Produced by Nepal Forum for Environmental Journalists with TVE
Produced in association with the Commission of the European Communities and WITNESS

Devendra Ale was a teacher and, like most Nepalese teachers, regularly beat the children in his class. In Nepal, teachers regard beating as the only way of maintaining discipline.

But it was when Devendra quit teaching to work with CVICT, an organization working to rehabilitate victims of torture from Burma and Nepal, that he had a revelation about the damage he'd inflicted on the children in his classroom.

Today he campaigns to end corporal punishment in Nepalese schools. Retracing his story, this film highlights children's rights to be free from all forms of cruel and unnecessary punishment enshrined in the Convention on the Rights of the Child.

Where Truth Lies - A dramatic case before the South African Truth and Reconciliation Commission.

Going Home - 10-year old soldier escapes rebel forces in Sierra Leone.
