Learn about our work in Ethiopia
Our innovative approach to poverty research is enabling us to collect a wealth of information not only about children's material and social circumstances, but also their perspectives on their lives and aspirations for their futures, set against the social and environmental realities of their communities.
Through our pro-poor sample we are building up a comprehensive picture of what poverty means for children in Ethiopia today. We are interested in children's subjective experience and views about their lives as well as more standard poverty measures.
Young Lives is an international study of childhood poverty following the changing lives of 12,000 children in Ethiopia, India (in the state of Andhra Pradesh), Peru and Vietnam over 15 years.
Our groundbreaking longitudinal study of 3000 children allows us to highlight particular issues and explore children's daily experiences in more depth.
