Young Lives is a unique, international longitudinal study, which is currently taking place in Ethiopia, India, Peru and Vietnam. The project aims to improve our understanding of the causes and consequences of childhood poverty in the developing world by following the lives of 8,000 children and their families over a 15 year period. The initial three years of the project is funded by the UK government’s Department for International Development (DFID). Project partners include academic institutions and Save the Children UK in the four countries, the UK and South Africa. Further information about the project is available at our website or can be obtained by emailing the cantact below.
