A lack of legal identification presents a serious problem for millions of children worldwide. One in four children under the age of five have never had their births registered, thereby lacking an ID and access to basic services such as health care and education. In the absence of legal recognition, these children can be forced into marriage and labor markets before a legal age, become victims of human trafficking, or end up trapped in a life of criminality. How can we create a future in which all children have access to this fundamental right?

In this project, we are designing a new prize competition to incentivize innovations to provide digital and legal identity to these millions of children that protects and empowers them, and helps them thrive.
