« According to UNICEF, 230 million children do not have a legal existence and over 2.4 billion people do not have a birth certificate. In Africa alone, over half the population does not have a legal identity for lack of birth registration. As soon as I found out how big an effect on people's lives this had, I designed iCivil.
