6:30 REPORT: Afghanistan 16th Worst Country For Children
In this report host Tariq Majidi has assessed the situation of children in Afghanistan based on a report by Save the Children which shows that war, poverty and discrimination have greatly affected the lives of children in the country.
The “End of Childhood Index Ranking” of the organization features 175 countries. The index scores reflect the average level of performance across a set of eight indicators related to child health, education, labor, marriage, childbirth and violence. The only reason a country was not included in this analysis was insufficient data, the organization says.
The report states Afghanistan as being the 16th worst country for children in the world.
