Change in stakeholder attitudes on citizenship, nationality and statelessness towards community led advocacy and significant increase in birth and national I.D registration through both systemic advocacy led policy reform
I am a paralegal and my main area of expertise is citizens empowerment and what I would like to gan from this group is how to make the government hear our views and work on them.
I am a young individual driven by principles and goals desiring to develop myself and empower those who need empowerment on basic issues. I derive lessons from my experiences and desire to share the same. I am a law student awaiting to graduate and enrol in the advocacy program ultimately to get admitted to the bar and roll of Advocates in the High Court of Kenya. I work as a para-legal assistant with Nubian Rights Forum on their citizenship project where I enter client details into our on-line data management system, give advice to client on various legal issues like marital disputes and various torts and crimes against persons. I also escort and assist clients to various citizenship offices. Occasionally I go to the offices on their behalf and follow up on their files. On Saturdays I contribute on our community radio show, dubbed Uhaki which translated means Rights, where we seek to educate the community of their rights and privileges and ways to seek redress from the justice system in Kenya. I have also worked on two research projects with Research Solutions Africa where I did field research, talking to respondents on the ground and interviewing them and also project coordinating in the office ensuring the organised flow of data and management of high profile respondents. My desire is to develop law deficient individuals from areas I cannot reach through this platform and gaining knowledge on the various laws and issues other jurisdictions are faced with.
Am a kenyan citizen aged 39 years old, living in Kibra and working as a paralegal at the Nubian Rights Forum where we help our community the Nubians in acquiring the citizenship document. i.e Birth and death certificates, passports and National Identification Cards. I want to interact and exchange ideas with other people here, paralegals and learn more about citizenship and how to go about burning issues affecting the community
