Africa: Jovago, Unicef Partner to Enhance Infant Registration in Africa

Thursday, October 23, 2014

Jovago.com – an online hotel booking company- and UNICEF have launched a partnership with the aim of ensuring official birth registration of every child born in Africa. The partnership includes financial support of UNICEF’S Birth Registration Programme via ICT and mobile technology.

Jovago supports UNICEF’s “Passport to Protection” initiative. This programme advances child protection by registering children with Birth Certificates using internet technology.

For every booking that is made using the code “UNICEF”, Jovago.com will donate US $5 at no extra cost to the customer. The goal is to collect US $100,000 during the first year of the partnership.
