Bangladesh

While Bangladesh has made great progress in recent years to increase female representation in parliament, traditional attitudes mean women remain less likely to be in work or earn as much as men.

Liberia

Young people in Liberia have grown up in a country scarred by civil war. The conflict claimed more than 200,000 lives and destroyed the economy, the education system, and most of the country’s infrastructure.

Madagascar

Madagascar may be one of the richest environments on the planet for wildlife, but for many of its people, life is a daily struggle.

Myanmar

After more than four decades of oppression under military rule, Myanmar (also known as Burma) has adopted a new constitution and is following a path to democracy for its 53.7 million people.

Nicaragua

Although Nicaragua has seen higher levels of growth than many countries in Latin America, it remains the poorest country in the region.

Pakistan

With women facing early forced marriage and honour killings, Pakistan is one of the most dangerous countries in the world to be born female.

Senegal

Between the 16th and 19th Centuries, Senegal was the departure point for thousands of slaves making the gruelling voyage to the US and Europe. Today, many young people choose to make the arduous journey to Europe, risking their lives as they migrate from Senegal in search of a better life.

Togo

With a population that is predominantly young and rural, it is apt that the green stripes of Togo’s flag symbolise hope and agriculture. Yet poverty remains widespread and poor governance continues to hamper efforts to end it.

Zambia

Zambia is now classed as a middle income country, but many families continue to face a daily struggle against rising food prices, poverty, and weak governance.
