Kenya population is currently growing at slightly over 1.2 million. This averages to about 3,300 new living persons in Kenya every day. By 2050 Kenya population is projected to grow and reach 95 million. This growth calls for a constant changing Kenya environment plan that meet Kenya Constitution article, 42 requirement of "Every person has the right to a clean and healthy environment…” Diaspora through Diaspora University will contribute toward 10 Kenya Constitutional rights: environment right, 42; social economic rights, 43; right to life, 26; and right to academic freedom and scientific research.

10 Kenya Constitution Rights that Diaspora will advance via Diaspora University. 

1. Right to Clean and Healthy Environment, Kenya Constitution 42. Every person has the right to a clean and healthy environment, which includes the right— (a) to have the environment protected for the benefit of present and future generations through legislative and other measures, particularly those contemplated in Article 69; and (b) to have obligations relating to the environment fulfilled under Article 70.

Through Diaspora University consulting and setting up an education system that advances the right to clean and healthy environment the university will strive each day to achieve this right for Kenyans, and visitors to Kenya at all times.  

2. Right to Healthcare, Kenya Constitution 43. (1) Every person has the right— (a) to the highest attainable standard of health, which includes the right to health care services, including reproductive health care.

Diaspora Doctors, Registered Nurses and other healthcare professionals in the Kenya University Project will advance this by growing the current medical hospital system in Kenya. The system will be implemented through the Diaspora University.

3. Right to Housing, Kenya Constitution 43. (1) Every person has the right— (b) to accessible and adequate housing, and to reasonable standards of sanitation;

Every Diaspora person who becomes part of Kenya University Project joins the project to advance the right of housing. By starting Diaspora University based on right of housing the university shall advance this right.

4. Right to Food, Kenya Constitution 43. (1) Every person has the right— (c) to be free from hunger, and to have adequate food of acceptable quality.

As the population grows the risk of hunger increases. A great system is supposed to produce enough food and deliver it to all persons. Diaspora Kenyans through the Diaspora University will advance research that advances growth of food supply. Kenya by 2050 is 95 million persons. This means more food production and supply. 

5. Right to Water, Kenya Constitution 43. (1) Every person has the right— (d) to clean and safe water in adequate quantities.

A person each day requires about 50 gallons of water. For this to be met as needed the best water management plan should be developed.

6. Right to Social Security, Kenya Constitution 43. (1) Every person has the right— (e) to social security. 

Social security is achieved through a person having a job. The Kenya University Project that produces Diaspora University also creates 20,000 jobs in 5 years. Diaspora University will advance the creation of jobs through entrepreneurship. By 2050 the 95 million population will require about 50 million jobs created for the right of social security to be met. 

7. Right to Education, Kenya Constitution 43. (1) Every person has the right— (e) to education.

Education plays a big role in achieving the rights and for this reason it becomes a right. Denying one education can indeed be constitutional argued to denying one their rights to healthcare, housing, food or life. Diaspora though the Diaspora University will not only advance the right to education but through education advance other social and economic rights. 

8. Right to Emergency Medical Treatment, Kenya Constitution 43 (2) A person shall not be denied emergency medical treatment.

A hospital medical system first responsibility is saving life. The Diaspora University Medical Hospital Plan shall be set it with the goal to achieve this right. 

9. Right to Life, Kenya Constitution 26. (1) Every person has the right to life. 

Every day a person lives the person risks death. The Diaspora through the Diaspora University shall advance new ways to minimize the risk of death especially the deaths associated with the right to food, healthcare, housing, social security, emergency medical treatment and education. 

10. Right to Academic Freedom and Scientific Research, Kenya Constitution 33. (1) Every person has the right to freedom of expression, which includes— (c) academic freedom and freedom of scientific research. 

As population grows there is need to find new ways to achieve the rights of life, food, housing, healthcare, social security and other rights. Through setting up the Diaspora University system anchored on academic freedom and scientific research, Diaspora will advance innovation and invention. Those who become innovators and inventors of new products and system through Diaspora University will contribute toward attainment of the right to life, constitution 26; the environment right, constitution 42; and the social economic rights, constitution 43.
