Five years on: What happened to the millennium development babies

In 2005, the Guardian featured ten newborn babies in countries across Africa, telling the stories of their births, their families and the lives they have been born into. It pledged to track their lives up to 2015 – the date the world had set for achieving the millennium development goals – as a way to tell the story of millions of people across the developing world as they struggled to provide the best chance for their children. Five years later the Guardian returned to find out what had happened to them. Read their stories here.
