Who we are

Nubian Rights Forum a Human rights organization started in 1997 as a human rights movement that advocates for the rights of the Nubian ethnic minority in Kenya. Nubian Rights Forum was officially registered in 2011 by the Ministry of Gender and Social Development and has a full mandate of the people to agitate for the community’s rights countrywide due to its acceptability by the people. The group is located in Kibra Nairobi but operates countrywide through its networks in the Nubian settlements.

Nubian rights Forum has reported major landmarks in its growth. These include the institutionalization of the planning process; the shift in orientation from civic education to paralegal work that assists the community in applying for citizenship documents like birth certificates, National Identification cards, passports and has a radio show used for civic education and empowerment and its main focus is on public interest and litigation.
