More than 90% of street children in Jakarta do not have a birth certificate.

This leaves them vulnerable to violence and crime and makes it difficult for them to to access public services, such as education, health, and social security.

Our partnership with the Aviva insurance group has implemented the ‘Birth Certificate for Street Children' Programme, helping Kamelia to get her birth certificate, along with thousands of street children in the Jakarta area.

Support forgotten children

no child should be treated differently
