A birth certificate is an open door, a bridge, and a shield. It provides access to essential human rights, and bestows an identity, the ability to vote and a say in shaping the world. Particularly for girls, it offers special protection against the perils of child marriage, child trafficking and forced or exploitative labour. Every year, 51 million babies are not registered at birth. Child by child, girl by girl, this gift is changing that.

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.
