In partnership with our in-country partner FAPE, MCT will be hosting a regional conference in Taroudannt this coming Saturday (20 December) as part of our advocacy strategy :
Under the umbrella of child protection and the right to birth registration, we are advocating systemic changes to increase accessibility. Based on our project experience over the last year in the domain of post-neonatal birth registration, we plan to share our experience along with that of the sectors concerned: health, education, authorities, tribunal, national registry, and civil society. We will also be screening the documentary Bastards directed by MCT trustee Deborah Perkin, which will also feature commentary from the main character of the film whose true story is portrayed. The aim of the day is to confirm commitment from regional heads of the relevant sectors to implement our plan of systemic change.
