Azerbaijan's children: no birth certificate, no right to education

1 June 2018 is the International Day for Protection of Children. Meydan TV spoke to the president of the Azerbaijan Children Union to learn more about the country's undocumented children. Without birth certificates, they are unable to get education and often have to work from a young age on.

While you are here …

We have a small favor to ask of you. In an environment where information is under tight government control, Meydan TV works hard to ensure that people have access to quality independent journalism. We shed light on stories you might otherwise not read because we believe that those who cannot speak up deserve to be heard, and those in power need to be held accountable. We invest considerable time, effort and resources to do so, which is why we need your help.

Your support empowers our courageous journalists, many of whom work at great personal risk to freedom and safety. Every contribution to the protection of independent journalism in Azerbaijan matters. Thank you.
