Stories from The Street

Nov 25 2020 • 28 mins

In the third episode of our podcast series we talk to Toybox CEO; Lynne Morris and Director of Marketing and Fundraising at Toybox; Naomi Lewis. Why these two guests? Lynne and Naomi have been a big part of the Toybox journey when it comes to birth registration projects, part of our Toybox community which has registered more than 6,200 children.

Introducing us to birth registration and looking into the reasons why 1 in 4 children around the world don’t have a birth certificate, we’ll explore what this means for street children, their families and their futures.

Lynne and Naomi share with us their experience of meeting mothers registering their children in a Guatemalan prison and the huge significance completing the official identity process has in young lives.
