Foreword by Amartya Sen (Nobel Prize for Economics, 1998)
Afterword by Kailash Satyarthi (Nobel Peace Prize, 2014)

In 2005, Nick Danziger began to create an archive of photographs documenting the lives of women and children in eight of the world’s poorest countries. He returned five years later, and again in 2015. Had the United Nation’s millennium development goals made a difference to their lives?

The stories he tells – in pictures and words – are unforgettable and have created a unique document, one that reveals the uncomfortable truths of a globalised planet. It is full of hope, sadness, pain, anger and beauty.

Some of the women and children Nick followed died through sickness and poverty. One has become the most successful entrepreneur her African border town has ever known. Another – who once dreamed of becoming a banker – is now a gang member in the world’s murder capital. Yet another has confronted conformists and successfully changed his gender.

The book will stand as a permanent record of their courage and humanity, but also as a reminder that much work still needs to be done if these goals are ever to be met. Too many people in India, Cambodia, Zambia, Uganda, Niger, Honduras, Bolivia and Armenia are still living in extreme poverty, without access to the health and education the goals were supposed to deliver.
