I am working on estimating people per building in a known locations within those countries. Then, applying the values to intrepolate population. Your help and advice is greatly appreciated.

Openstreetmap would be a good place to explore first. Then I would recommend going looking at each countries statistical/data office, and then each city that you are interested.

There are a few other questions on this site about global data which may be of use.
