A birth certificate is no mere piece of paper. It’s an open door, a bridge, a shield and a safeguard. It means access to essential, basic human rights: education, health care, and protection from abuse and exploitation. It bestows identity, the ability to vote and a say in shaping the world. And every year, 51 million babies are not registered at birth. But child by child, this gift is changing that.
Your $25 gift is matched for a $125 value!
Because of this gift, more than 4,300 vulnerable and displaced children in Colombia are protected and accessing their basic human rights. With a birth certificate, all children are better protected from abuse and exploitation and can access such essentials as education and healthcare – giving these children the tools they need to create their own future and, one day, to lead their communities and their countries.
