Outreach Program

The Nubian Rights Forum (NRF), in partnership with the Kenyan Department of Civil Registration with the support of UNHCR, Namati and the Open Society Justice Initiative (OSJI) have conducted three successful mobile birth registration campaigns in Kibra, Nairobi.

The mobile birth campaign is a five day registration process where the Nubian Rights Forum invites and facilitates the civil registration department officials in Kibera to register births on the ground.

NRF supplements the officials with paralegals who help guide the applicants through the registration process, register the names and contacts of the applicants as well as helping them fill the forms especially for those who
