AKIPRESS.COM - Children growing up in Niger are at the highest risk of having their childhood cut short, according to a report by Save the Children. The nongovernmental organization's report for 2017 ranked the country as the worst place to be a kid, globally.

Norway and Slovenia share the top position as the best places to grow up.

The End of Childhood Report ranked 172 countries from best to worst in an effort to explore the main reasons why childhood comes to an early end in certain places.

The rankings were determined by measuring the average level of performance across eight topics: under-5 mortality, malnutrition that stunts growth, out-of-school children, child labor, early marriage, adolescent births, displacement by conflict and child homicide.
