    ID4Afica forum- 1st Govt Forum on eID in Africa

    The idea for ID4Africa was motivated by the need to change the current situation of identification systems in Africa, where large segments of the population continue to suffer from the lack of robust and accessible ID. In many cases they are not documented in the civil register and as adults they do not hold identity credentials that enable them to exercise their rights and participate in society. As a consequence they remain in the shadows of society excluded, burdened and unable to benefit from the fruits of development. It is a movement of empowerment where Africa would take matters into its own hands and would dictate how it will respond to its identification needs.
