Consultant documentation MyName campaign challenge on birth registration, Yaoundé Cameroon,6months (Remote/Home Based)

UNICEF works in some of the world’s toughest places, to reach the world’s most disadvantaged children. To save their lives. To defend their rights. To help them fulfill their potential.

Across 190 countries and territories, we work for every child, everywhere, every day, to build a better world for everyone.

And we never give up.

For every child, a chance

In Cameroon, 38% of the children are not registered a birth and thus deprived of a legal identity.

The right to a legal existence is the first right for every human being and is concretely embodied by the birth certificate, which establishes the child’s name and affiliation. Birth registration provides an important layer of protection for a child, which marks acknowledgment of a child’s existence and identity. Enshrined in the Convention on the Rights of the Child (Articles 7 and 8), and the African Charter on the Rights and Welfare of the Child (Article 6), the right to be recognized as a person before the law is a critical step in ensuring lifelong protection and may be a prerequisite for children’s ability to claim other rights

How can you make a difference?
