NAÎTRE / Service Design


Birth registration is the only legal way for a child to get a birth certificate. However, an estimated 237 million children under age 5 worldwide currently do not have a birth certificate. What’s worse, in many Sub-Saharan African countries, rural birth registration for children under 5 is less than 50 percent.

Therefore, we create NAÎTRE, a birth registration envelope, collaborate with UNFPA to help the parent or caregiver log the birth of a newborn baby in a simple and economic way. Not only is it a birth certificate, but also a temporary proof of Identity. In this way, children will be counted and visible to society.
