Workshop on Civil Status in Bouaké, Côte d’Ivoire

A workshop on civil status was held yesterday in Bouaké, a city in the center of Côte d’Ivoire, as part of  the International Women’s Day. Emmanuelle Audet, project manager for the follow-up mission to Côte d’Ivoire  from Lawyers without Boarders Canada,  Gaëlle Petillon, legal advisor,  Tarik Marc project manager at the IBCR  and our volunteer Malika Saher Been, were invited for this occasion. The workshop provided information to pregnant women and young mothers at Koko Maternity regarding the procedures to adopt for reporting a birth. This period of exchange was possible thanks to our partners: the legal clinic of Bouaké and the Association of Women Lawyers in Côte d’Ivoire (AFJCI).
