In these films, young people from Brazil, Colombia and South Africa talk about their hopes and dreams as well as worries about the future, what is holding them back and what is helping to pursue their dreams despite those challenges, and the advice they would give to other young people living in poverty.  

The film contributions were produced during the COVID-19 pandemic, whilst the audio contributions from South Africa were produced before the pandemic.
