Promoting Equity and Legal Identity for Children in Yemen by Improving Civil Registration (2012-2015)

Pays :Yémen

Durée : 6 October 2012 - 30 November 2015

Domaine : Human rights

Contexte

Children and adolescents continue to be the most important segments of the community of Yemen ; representing over 50% of the population, they are at the heart of any meaningful engagement for making a real change in Yemen. However, the low birth registration in Yemen (only 22.3% of children under five) limits access for children and families to social services and affects the protection of children. This project seeks to improve the birth registry in Yemen as a means of promoting equity among the population and legal identity for children.

Descriptif

The project aims to : * Provide equitable and sustainable access for the most vulnerable boys and girls to protection services, particularly to birth registration. ; * Strengthen system and capacities, increase awareness and demand for birth registration in order to increase the proportion of children registered and thus legally identified.

Résultats

40 birth registration points have been established in the five targeted governorates of Taiz, Ibb, Hodeidah, Aden and Al Dhale. * So far, 140 new staff from CRA, Health, Education and Justice Ministries have been trained on birth registration procedures through training workshops. * A total of 13 216 conflict-affected, displaced and most vulnerable children (6 258 girls, 6 958 boys) have been provided with birth certificates through mobile teams as an emergency response. * 120 faith based leaders (imams and male/female preachers) have been trained on birth registration and community awareness.
