The 12th annual Mothers’ Index analyzes health, education and economic conditions for women and children in 164 countries. Norway is the world’s best place to be a mother, while Afghanistan is the worst. This year, Kuwait ranks # 34 in the less developed countries category while Cuba ranked #1. Bahrain was the highest ranking in the Gulf Countries at # 17, followed by U.A.E #36, Qatar #38, Saudi Arabia #64 and finally Oman #69.
I was shocked that Kuwait was so far down the line from Cuba! Why do you think that is ? What are we missing in Kuwait and how can we develop it more?
