‘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.

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.
