On June 1, International Children’s Day will be observed in Laos and around the world. Ahead of Children’s Day, Save the Children is launching the Global Childhood Report. The report features the third edition of our annual End of Childhood Index, which ranks countries according to where childhood is most and least threatened. In the year 2000, an estimated 970 million children were robbed of their childhoods due to ‘childhood enders’ – life-changing events like child marriage, early pregnancy, exclusion from education, sickness, malnutrition and violent deaths. That number today has been reduced to 690 million – meaning that at least 280 million children worldwide are better off today than they would have been two decades ago.
