More than 1,300 people from several inner-city communities have received birth certificates under a joint initiative between the Registrar General's Department (RGD) and the Jamaica Social Investment Fund (JSIF) through its Operation Certification programme.
Launched in January of this year, the programme aims to assist at-risk youth, aged 15 to 29, across 18 participating Integrated Community Development Project (ICDP) communities to obtain their birth certificates as an initial step in integrating them into society.
