Young Lives

Young Lives is a long-term international research project investigating the changing nature of childhood poverty in order to:

  • improve understanding of the causes and consequences of childhood poverty and to examine how policies affect children's well-being
  • inform the development and implementation of policies and practices that will reduce childhood poverty.

To do this we are tracking the lives of 12,000 children growing up in four developing countries over 15 years. The study countries - Ethiopia, the state of Andhra Pradesh in India, Peru and Vietnam - were selected to reflect a wide range of cultural, political, geographical and social contexts.
