Supporting International Identity Day on 16th September

ID Day banner


Supporting the campaign to make every 16th September International Identity Day.

Why September 16th?

The choice of the date is in recognition of the UN’s Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) 16.9 which calls for a legal identity for all including birth registration by 2030.

In support of this, we asked some of the WiD team  to tell us about themselves and what identity means to them…
