To Make People Count, We Need to Count People
230 million children around the world are all but invisible because they have not been counted. When children have their births registered, it means they have a legal identity, and can prove who they are and how old they are. Those without a birth certificate are left out and at risk of child exploitation, child labor, and child trafficking.
Plan and its partners are fighting to change the course in the 100 countries that don’t have functioning civil registration and vital statistics systems.
Help us count every child and get everyone in the picture.
