Other Activites
Birth Registration: HimRights promotes Birth Registration, a critical step in obtaining citizenship, which is also a prerequisite to own or inherit land, voter's right and participate in other democratic processes and obtain jobs in the formal sector. Door-to-Door Campaign, Birth Registration Camps and Awareness Programs of birth registration were conducted in Makwanpur,
Bara and Rautahat in coordination with VDCs, Local Development Office and Municipalities. We registered 135,476 births very successful, which was far beyond our targeted numbers, even during the heights of the conflict period. Similarly, IEC materials were distributed at local level to sensitize community on importance of Birth Registration.

Election Observation: HimRights has been part of Election Observation, Monitoring Voter education activities. The activities not only focused on importance of right to vote, promotion of free, fair election but also on child rights violations before, during and after the election. HimRights coordinated the Constituent Assembly Election Observation on behalf of Partnerships for Protecting Children in Armed Conflict (PPCC), 2008 to monitor the child rights violations as well all previous elections- voter’s education and monitoring. PPCC observed the CA election in 17 districts of Nepal and mobilized 117 observers.  PPCC found that many children were used in different stages and in various capacitates. Prior to the election, political parties used children in their campaigning including to write political graffiti, to distribute posters and pamphlets. On the Election Day, children were found to vote. They were also used in victory rally after results were announced. A detailed report of the observation was submitted to the Election Commission, political parties, child rights organizations and relevant government officials.
