Ghost Children

Ghost Children

More than 230 million children around the world have never been registered at birth and are now unknown to their own country.
37% of these children live in Senegal, Côte d’Ivoire, Burkina Faso and other countries.
In the eyes of society, they do not exist. The consequences are often dramatic : early marriages, forced labor and many obstacles to pursue studies, and finally to vote.
This survey, carried out by local personalities, sets out to meet these «invisibles», their families and local authorities who try to stem this phenomenon.
