This legislation, passed unanimously by Congress, helps ensure that children in developing countries are registered at birth, a key milestone that if missed causes a lifetime of hardship in getting basic services and rights, such as access to education, the right to vote, and getting a job. The bill was first introduced in the fall of 2013 and its passage marks a significant commitment to improving girls’ lives around the world.
