iCivil in the French Newspaper “Journal du Dimanche”

French attorneys and escrows are interested in all vital events, not only in France but in the rest of the world.  For this reason, Théo Dupuis wrote an article about iCivil on 8th December. 

The Ghost Children conundrum is impeding emerging countries’ development and according to Jacques Krabal, who is leading the project for the APF (Assemblée Parlementaire de la Francophonie).  The escrows are unanimous in declaring that registering birth certificates at the birth of children is a gateway to access all other foundational rights, including the right to get an education and the right to own property.

"For a lot of children, not having a birth certificate means that they cannot attend school after grade 5: in Senegal, for instance, you need a birth certificate to continue studying after grade 5"

"In Mali, it is impossible for a child without a birth certificate to go to primary school. This excludes them even faster from the school system."

"Civil registration is an economic and social instrument for development. It enables political decision-makers to direct their actions better. It's not only a question of giving a name, a date of birth and a place of birth to an individual, it's the first deed for the organisation of life in society".
