[Featured Resource] Citizenship Rights in Kenya

This week’s profiled resource is titled “Citizenship Rights in Kenya” and come to us from Namati Kenya and their partners: Haki na Sheria, Haki Centre, Nubian Rights Forum, and Open Society Foundations. This publication contains flip charts developed to guide paralegals, working on citizenship issues, through community meetings. To learn more about these flip charts and to see them in use, you can read @mustafa_mahmoud’s post in our online forum.

More about Citizenship Rights in Kenya:

The vision of the flip charts is to guide the paralegals during community meetings. This was as a result of the inconsistency in the content of community meetings by the paralegals from the different parts of the country. One of the partners had already developed a one pager that guided the paralegals on how to plan their session.

We identified this as a best practice and thought of how to enhance it by adding more content while at the same time simplify the contents and make it interesting for the participants. This inspired the use of cartoon illustrations and infographics.
