There’s lots of different reasons why children still end up stateless, but it’s never their fault.
Thousands of children in Europe are growing up without a nationality, without a country to belong to. They are often not allowed into schools, or even to see a doctor if they are sick. No chance to grow up like other kids. Statelessness brings hardship and anguish to children and their parents alike.
It is a problem that is entirely solvable, yet over half of European countries don't have necessary safeguards in place to protect children from statelessness. This is why we are calling on European countries to end childhood statelessness once and for all. Sign our online petition and help us end childhood statelessness once and for all.
