Africa’s Child-Friendly Index

A report released this week, which ranks how child-friendly 52 African countries are, confirms that overall the region has become a better place for children than it was just five years ago. The findings in the African Report on Child Wellbeing 2013: Towards Greater Accountability to Africa’s Children were released by the African Child Policy Forum (ACPF). A few of the countries that scored the highest included Mauritius, South Africa, Tunisia, Cape Verde and Lesotho.
