The affordable education loan option
Pretoria - The home affairs department has teamed up with Agri SA to facilitate the early registration of children born to farmworkers and farm owners.
The campaign aims at registering the birth of children on the National Population Register within 30 days, Minister Naledi Pandor told an Agri SA summit in Pretoria.
“The only way to know who lives and dies is through civil registration. The civil registration allows citizens to enjoy the fruits of citizenship,” she said.
“Without the civil registration, we in government won't be able to design adequate public services or to pursue adequate policies of social inclusion.”
Her department had established the late registration of births process in an attempt to help people without birth certificates.
Agri SA is a federation of agricultural organisations. Its affiliates are commodity entities, provincial agricultural unions, and a diverse group of farmers.
