Right To Identity
Under 20 Minutes • 13m
With one of the lowest levels of birth registration in Africa, Tanzania’s failing infrastructure and logistical challenges have left decades of backlog in birth registrations. A Tanzanian governmental agency, RITA, joined forces with some strong partners and decided to tackle the issue of birth registration with an innovative approach: capturing data using mobile phones. The moment a child is registered, the government remains accountable to that child as a citizen of the country, and the child is entitled to claim their rights as an individual. 'Right to Identity' sets out to explore how mobile technology is being used to secure one of the most fundamental human rights - a right to identity.
