|State of the World's Mothers 2014||Save the Children's annual State of the World's Mothers report, now in its fifteenth edition, compares 178 countries around the globe, showing which are succeeding – and which are failing – in saving and improving the lives of mothers and their children. Overall, Finland was ranked the best place to be a mother for the second straight year and Somalia came in last. The report shows that maternal and child mortality in the most challenging countries of the world can be dramatically cut when efforts are made to improve services for mothers and children.
|Unlocking potential through education: key achievements||Globally, we have made great strides towards achieving universal primary education
since 2000. However, there are still 57 million children worldwide who are denied
their right to education, half of whom live in conflict-affected or fragile states and are,
consequently, doubly disadvantaged. In addition, there are millions more children
who, despite being in school, are failing to learn the basics.||31/10/2013||7MB|
