The Young Lives Peru Country Report presents results from a 15-year longitudinal study, which followed two cohorts of children in various situations from remote rural areas to urban communities, as a component of a larger multi-country project.. The study relates conditions early in the lives of children to later outcomes, and so improves understanding of the effects of poverty on children’s life trajectories. It also provides information on the changes taking place in the lives of children, and offers evidence-based guidance for policies to improve children’s chances of developing their full portential as individuals and members of their communities.
Young Lives is an international study of childhood poverty, following the lives of 12,000 children in 4 countries (Ethiopia, India, Peru and Vietnam) over 15 years. Young Lives is funded by the UK Department for International Development
