Problems Caused by Lack of Birth Registration
When a child’s birth isn’t officially recorded, it can lead to all sorts of difficulties in their life, like:
Reduced Access to Essential Services: Unregistered children often have trouble getting important services like education, healthcare, and social protection.
Increased Risk of Exploitation: Children without official birth records are more likely to be exploited, becoming victims of child labor, trafficking, and forced marriage.
Limited Opportunities: These children face more challenges in getting education, jobs, and chances to improve their lives.
This partnership is a golden chance to fix the problem of birth registration in Nigeria, making sure every child can enjoy a better future.
