The project, is an initiative of Mamadou Doudou Seydi and aims to enable all citizens to be able to carry out their declaration of civil acts such as the declaration of births or deaths.

In Africa in general, and Senegal in particular, those who live in remote corners have no means of making civil declarations.

The consequences are detrimental, especially for births, because undeclared children have no official existence in the state files. They are therefore considered stateless and in the end, they cannot claim any paper.

The draft proposes all citizens to be able to perform their declaration of civil acts such as the declaration of births or deaths by sms.

The project is an initiative that sprang from the alarming constant of the institutional fissure that exists between the big cities and the interior of the country.
