Niños del Milenio, also known as Young Lives, is an international study of childhood poverty following the changing lives of 12, 000 children in Peru, Ethiopia, India (in the state of Andhra Pradesh) and Vietnam over 15 years.

The study is unique in that it directly links the evidence-base of research to policymakers and planners, both in the study countries and internationally. The research component includes quantitative and qualitative investigation, analysis and monitoring of policies benefiting children, as well as communication and policy advocacy.

The organizations implementing the study in Peru are Grupo de Analisis para el Desarrollo (GRADE) and Instituto de Investigacion Nutricional (IIN). The international research is coordinated by a team based at the University of Oxford.

Niños del Milenio is core-funded from 2001 to 2017 by UK aid from the Department for International Development (DFID) and co-funded by the Netherlands Ministry of Foreign Affairs from 2010 to 2014.
