Having official birth registration documents is important but many poor Cambodian families do not have these official records for their children.

A birth certificate provides children with an official identity, giving them easier access to education and health services and ultimately protection against child labour and child marriage, as well as safety from abuse and trafficking.

So far this year in 2016 our Outreach Team has helped families and worked with local authorities to obtain official documents for 41 children that did not have them before.
