15 Children Received Their Birth Certificates!

The 10th of April 2012 was a memorable day for 15 children from Prumpung who finally received their birth certificates.

After going through a long bureaucratic process, with the help of the Sahabat Anak officer and Rohanita from Prumpung, the children can now enjoy their rights to have an identity recognized by the Indonesian Government.

We hope that, together, we can continue to help children receive their birth certificates so that they are able to access their right to an identity. We are well aware that a birth certificate is a very important document to have for their futures.

Thank you to all the parties involved in fulfilling a child’s right to access their birth certificate. A special thank you to the Sahabat Anak officer and Rohanita for all their hard work.

About Sahabat Anak

Sahabat Anak is a non-profit organisation that provides quality education and children’s rights advocacy in an effort to encourage and inspire Jakarta’s street children to escape urban poverty. The movement began in 1997 after a group of university students made a commitment to make a difference in the lives of Indonesia's street children. As a volunteer-based organisation, Sahabat Anak aims to involve as many members of the community as possible to help improve the lives of street children.
