One in every twelve children around the world lives worse than their parents

One in every twelve children around the world lives in a country where their prospects are now worse than those of their parents, according to an analysis that Unicef ​​has released on the occasion of the World Children's Day, celebrated today.

United Nations, Nov 20 (EFE) .- One in every twelve children around the world lives in a country where their prospects are now worse than those of their parents, according to an analysis that Unicef It has been announced on the occasion of World Children's Day, which is celebrated today.

According to the study, 180 million children suffer levels of extreme poverty, school exclusion and violent deaths worse than those suffered by their parents 20 years earlier.

"Although the last generation has seen how the quality of life of children around the world grew enormously, the fact that there is a forgotten minority of children excluded from this progress is nonsense, "said the director of Data, Research and Policies of Unicef, Laurence Chandy.

" The dream of all parents, wherever they may be, is to give their children a better future than they did at their age, "said Chandy.

The analysis reveals that the number of people living with less than 1, dollars per day has increased in 14 countries due, above all, to wars, bad governments and agitations of all kinds, as happens in Benin, Cameroon, Madagascar, Zambia or Zimbabwe.

The number of students enrolled in primary education has been reduced in 21 countries, including Syria and Tanzania, by factors such as armed conflicts, financial crises or rapid growth of the population.

Violent deaths of children and adolescents under the age of 19 have increased in as many as seven countries, as in the Central African Republic, Iraq, Libya, Sudan. South, Syria, Ukraine and Yemen, all of them in the midst of armed conflicts.

The country that is worst off is South Sudan, which has seen the three indicators studied worse, while in the Central African Republic, Syria and Yemen there has been a setback in two of them, and in 37 countries some of the standards has been reversed.

"It is perverse that, at a time when that the rapid technological advancement is leading us to great improvements in our quality of life, there are hundreds of millions who see theirs getting worse, creating a feeling of injustice in they and failure in those in charge of watching over them, "Chandy said.
