Children who grow up in poor households are likely to remain poor. In this way the inequalities of apartheid are reproduced. This essay draws on child-centred data to illustrate how income inequality shapes children’s living conditions, access to services, education and health outcomes. It also highlights the urgent need to identify the key drivers of inequality and intervene for children now to reduce inequalities in the next generation.
